BFA ASSISTS IN VICTIM RESTORATION PLACEMENT: In the past two weeks, Beauty From Ashes (BFA) has provided assistance in placing four domestic victims of commercialized sexual exploitation and human sex trafficking into residential programs across the United States. A huge thanks to the agencies and organizations that partner with us to provide a seamless continuum of reach, rescue and restoration services to this marginalized population.
CONFIDENTIALITY OF CLIENTS: Without a client's consent to inform or a court subpoena, BFA will not reveal personal information regarding client's. Neither will we confirm whether or not this agency is, or ever has served individuals. We will advise clients of individuals, that have NOT been accused and/or associated with alleged predators, traffickers, and/or abusers, who is seeking information regarding them. It is up to the client whether or not they will make contact with those inquiring. Alleged predators, traffickers, abusers and/or accomplices attempting to secure information regarding survivors are reported to the authorities. Our commitment is to the autonomy, confidentiality, and justice of the persons this agency provides direct or indirect services to.
STRIP CLUB OUTREACHES: This Friday and Saturday the BFA OutREACH teams will be delivering gift bags that include bibles, God's Word for Mother's, beauty supplies, hair products, and resource contact information into two Fort Myers strip clubs. The team will also be serving a home cooked meal from the locker room of one of the clubs. Please keep the outreaches in your prayers.
