Emily Dickson speaks on what sex trafficking looks like locally and how we can stop it.

It's with heartfelt thanks that I share the results of our 2nd Annual Spring Gala, Treasured. Our supporters probably know that we are a small team and a young organization. So the fact that we can pull off the annual gala is a testament to the amazing volunteers and supporters who have come alongside us to partner with us. 

The effort to provide residential programs for local survivors of sex trafficking is possible because of people like you

This was our second year running this event. The event committee nearly doubled in size. They worked tirelessly to collect donations for the auction and raffle. They spread the word to encourage friends and family to attend the event. 

Check out our video on our Facebook page and be sure to like the page to follow updates.

So...how did we do? We're so pleased to share that the event brought in $36,000!

We had set an ambitious goal, an increase from the amount raised last year. And while we didn't quite reach that goal, we did hit other benchmarks.

For example, we gained 10 new Guardians for our monthly giving program!

That means we will be able to host a local Orange County Guardian event in the coming year. Our Guardians program is the most important part of our funding as the ongoing commitment of our Guardians sustains our operations.

Visit our Guardians page to learn more about how our monthly giving program helps in the fight against sex trafficking.
