BFA TRAINING & HUMAN TRAFFICKING EDUCATION: One of our goals is to educate the community and equip others to reach, rescue and restore victims of commercialized sexual exploitation and trafficking with the message there is help and a way out. Since 2005, we have been educating and training locally and across the United States in the development of our victim centered model. Currently we have equipped 27 other organizations and produced a 40+ page national curriculum that covers all aspects of sex worker outREACH. We also utilize international and national trafficking curriculum in presentations. Programs we offer:

A very special thank you to everyone that responded to my appeal to help my family in Indiana who suffered a total loss of their home in a tornado. Aunt Rhonda told me they have received gifts cards and packages from all over. I know Kimberly, Alex and Alexis are grateful for your generosity and kindness.
