OUR COMMITMENT TO PREVENTION COMES IN THE FORM OF OUR:Local Community ProgramsI Am Not Artist CampaignInternational Prevention Projects
LOCAL COMMUNITY PROGRAMS:
Trafficking EducationOur trafficking education presentations offered free of charge and are suitable for teen and adult audiences of all types: churches, service groups, educators, law enforcement, health care professionals, pregnancy centers, etc. Forever Found provides two presentations covering basic awareness (People for Sale: Human Trafficking 101) and commercial sexual exploitation in California (Harm at Home). Audiences are equipped to understand the problem of human trafficking, identify a potential victim, and respond with informed care to potential victims.
“By the end of the training, I felt more informed and more empowered to recognize the disease of child trafficking here in our own town. The training Forever Found offers should be a necessary requirement for every staff member or volunteer serving in any clinic or center.”
Yvonne Paul Elliott, RN, Avenues Pregnancy Clinic
Freedom Advocacy Our team of Freedom Advocates is equipped to speak publically on behalf of Forever Found and the victims of child trafficking, host events and parties at their home for their sphere of influence, start clubs on their campus, and use their voice in other venues. Freedom Advocates are people of all ages and backgrounds who want to use their unique voice, ideas, time and skills to make a difference.
Strategic Church Partnerships/OutreachIn partnership with Forever Found, local churches engage in the fight against child trafficking through congregation-wide awareness and invitation, trainings on victim identification and interaction, ongoing prayer, specific financial support, and community gatherings. Step one is a general call to the congregation, step two is a basic awareness course (Human Trafficking 101), step three is an advanced course on commercial sexual exploitation in California (Harm at Home), and step four is ongoing partnership.
Awareness EventsIncluding small event throughout the year and our Annual Dinner.
*We also utilize Media outlets to spread awareness and promote prevention locally: TV, Radio, Print, Material and personal marketing, press and print, Mailings, PR Campaigns, Social Media: FB, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, website and email blasts, etc.
International Prevention Projects:
We develop localized programs that result in near self-sustainability and achieve significant trafficking prevention by addressing the specific cause in that geographic region. Our goal is to stop the cycle of child trafficking in that geographic region. Looking to expand this by 2016. India Sewing Program-With the purchase of sewing machines and the incorporation of trained seamstress’, growing girls can learn hands on how to sew. This provides not just a sense of self-worth, but a possible means of supporting themselves and feeding their families.
