The Dallas sex trade earns an estimated $99 million dollars yearly. Last year, New Friends New Life served over 750 formerly trafficked teen girls and sexually exploited women and their children. “New Friends New Life really helped me learn how to be responsible, learn how to be a mother, learn how to love me… If it wasn’t for their program, I don’t know where I’d be. I’d probably still be in the whorehouse, waiting for a man to pick me, pick me,” said Carrie*, a current member of New Friends New Life.
By donating on September 18th during North Texas Giving Day, you will be providing New Friends New Life with resources to continue assisting women and girls like Carrie. Your support will help support the New Friends New Life programs, including the women’s program which assists women wanting out of the sex industry with a safe place to discuss their struggles, grants them with a community that can sincerely empathize with their experience, connects them with a licensed social worker to create a life plan and a counselor to begin processing past and present trauma, and provides educational opportunities to assist them in building a bridge to self-sufficiency. Additionally, if you donate $25 or more during North Texas Giving Day, your donation will be amplified!
