In 2018, we trained over 12,000 professionals and community members. We also served 225 individuals impacted by human trafficking in our aftercare program. 205 of those were new referrals. We continue to advocate throughout the state of Tennessee, with influence on the regional and national levels. We’ve spoken about our model in the White House, U.S. Capitol, and at the United Nations. We also do prevention work by holding 10-week group sessions for high risk youth in group homes, juvenile detention, and schools.
