We are a Survivor, Clinicians, Therapists, Parents, and Community Members. We believe that the first step to fighting childhood sexual abuse and human trafficking is through awareness. We teach the public what signs and symptoms to look for. We are committed to Educating Community and Business Leaders, Employees, Educators, Parents, Volunteers of Schools, and other youth-serving organizations, and concerned adults. We provide the tools and confidence to respond and report suspected sexual abuse and human trafficking. We provide this training at your place of business, community center, school, church, or public meeting space. We can travel to your site in the West Michigan Area, within 50 miles of Grand Rapids.
