 Hello Everyone!

 I am trying to write some flowing and outstanding thank you for all the generosity you have, once again, demonstrated to our agency!  Instead of anything brilliant I can only tell you that I peek into that BEAUTIFUL family room every time I come in to work.  I have witnessed each staff member taking someone into that room just to show them what our “new room” looks like. 

 The room has now been inspected, “test-driven”, and approved by a number of small clients.  You all received an A+++.  Yes, I have seen 2 staff playing in the kitchen, too.

 Thank you all for your time, money, gifts, efforts, creativity, and most of all your commitment to always thinking of ways to make our work better!


Take care!

The film unveils a growing problem in major U.S. cities where girls as young as 12 years old are bought and sold as many as 15 times a night to service the desires of men. Experience the shocking truth and follow several heroes as they fight to end this modern-day slavery and stop the next generation of buyers.
