Love146  I first learned about Love 146 a couple of months ago when I did a “Run for Love” 5k that they co-sponsored. Before the run, I thought I’d better know who exactly I was supporting, so I got on their website and read about their story. It shattered my heart. I sat before my computer and wept like a baby. Read their story and get involved in the fantastic work they are doing around the world. But your involvement doesn’t have to be limited to your computer screen; they have dozens of task forces around the USA that will allow you to get involved on the ground.

The White Umbrella Campaign I recently read The White Umbrella which “tells stories of survivors as well as those who came alongside to help them to recovery. It describes the pain and the strength of these young women and those who held the “white umbrella” of protection and purity over them on the road to restoration.” The stories in this powerful book come from the amazing work that is being done through an organization called Wellspring Living that is committed to rescuing and restoring exploited children right here in the USA. Check out the above links to find out more about their work.

For those of you in the Lancaster County Area, here are some great grassroots organizations starting up right in our community:

North Star Intiative I found out about North Star Intiative almost a year ago. What I love about their story is that it was birthed simply out of one woman’s encounter with human-trafficking happening right in her small Pennsylvania town. A mother and wife, Jen Sensenig had plenty of responsibilities to make her “exempt” from getting involved, but she decided that looking the other way wasn’t an option. Jen and her fellow leaders have used their organization to raise community awareness and are now in the process of building a restoration home for trafficked women in Southeast Pennsylvania. They have monthly task force meetings at Lancaster Bible College that inform community members how they can get involved.

NIMBY Founded by Bethany Woodcock, this organization is committed to giving community members the tools they need to get involved in the fight against human trafficking. The above link will take you to their Facebook page where they provide links to articles, legislation, and organizations that inform and motivate modern-day abolitionists. Head over and “like” their page to receive all their latest information on your Facebook feed.

Keep checking back for new resources to help you satisfy your calling!!!
