At New Friends New Life, we believe everyone has something to contribute so we place individuals where they are most passionate and gifted to aid the women and families in our program.
Community awareness and education are crucial elements in the fight against sex trafficking and sexual exploitation. Greater awareness of this crime helps identify victims sooner and education prevents it from happening in the first place. You can help us accomplish both by becoming a New Friends New Life Community Catalyst for your neighborhood and hosting a free small group discussion led by our staff.
