What We Do
We provide emergency needs for human trafficking survivors, such as food, clothing, and rent deposits. We also offer mentoring and emotional support for survivors in transition. Currently, we are working with around 30 survivors in the 6 county area. Needs vary greatly!
We are also available to share awareness trainings. We have been able to share in churches, schools, community groups, colleges, events, conferences, meetings, concerts, and just about anywhere. Contact us about coming! We can provide Trafficking 101 trainings as well as in-depth training too. Email Kelly King to schedule a date.

Stay tuned to our social media pages and our emails for updated information.
Boost Box Program
After spending the last few years working alongside these sweet survivors, we realized that a great way to keep encouraging them along their healing journey would be a special surprise box of goodies. We had decided to trial run this program for the 2017 year, and results are through the roof. This year, for 2018, we will be sending Boost Boxes out to the handful of youth/child trafficking survivors we work with. The ladies/kids receiving the boxes are blown away and so very thankful. We've heard GREAT feedback!

Meet Kelly King
I want people to know that human trafficking isn’t all about kidnapping, chains, the super bowl or the movie “Taken.” It is happening in a way that is very preventable. Human trafficking is all about people using other people for their benefit. It is a parent selling their kids for heroin, it’s a new best friend or boyfriend talking a young person into leaving her dysfunctional family for a “better life” and finds herself forced into prostitution, and it’s an impoverished foreigner who applies for a US job only to find himself in a position of agricultural slavery. This is all happening right here in NW Ohio.
