Dear Friends and Donors,
Pathfinder Center has been open now for 15 months. I remember the first day a survivor came to stay at Pathfinder Center, the look and tears in her eyes was one I’ll never forget. She found her safe place that was specifically built for survivors of labor and sex trafficking. That was a special day for all of us as we stood there with her and had tears of joy on our faces. Every bit of hard work was a labor of love and so worth it.
Funding for Pathfinder Center ended on September 30, 1018. Pathfinder Center is in need of raising $250,000 to continue to operate in the next year. Currently, Pathfinder has only two full-time staff and we need funding to hire additional staff so Pathfinder Center can shelter more survivors of human trafficking. Pathfinder Center has a waiting list of survivors wanting shelter at Pathfinder Center. However, we are unable to take any more survivors in with only two staff.
Providing services for survivors of human trafficking is not easy. They have many layers of traumas and individual needs are not easy tasks. Most survivors entering Pathfinder has anxiety, traumas, addictions, and are either on medication or need to see a doctor to be prescribed medication for depression, anxiety and other health issues.
Pathfinder Center needs your help to raise funds so we can hire additional staff and provide the needed essentials and services to survivors. We need to enable Pathfinder Center to shelter more survivors of sex trafficking.
Would you please consider donating monthly or giving a one-time donation? By donating you will help save lives. Women will become self-sufficient by learning job skills, taking classes and healing from their past traumas. Help us give survivors a chance to live their God given purpose and destiny.
Thank you and bless you!
