At our most recent “Priceless” movie screening, our board member and survivor Maribeth shared a poem about her experience. We got her permission to share it here as well. May it encourage and inspire you. Helping survivors find courage, healing and restoration is why organizations like Restoring Oaks exists. Thank you, Maribeth for your courage!
January is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month. We wanted to share 5 ways that teens can protect themselves from human trafficking and 5 ways that adults can combat human trafficking. You can also download these and share.
