Supporting Victims of Sex Trafficking and In-Crisis Youths +Young Adults
GIVE – MENTOR – LOVE is a foundation of dedicated professionals serving LA County youths and young adults in-crisis, at risk, homeless or in foster care, and victims of sex trafficking.
What we do
Our next big focus: the Village
LA County is a major hub for the commercial sexual exploitation of children in the US. When these children become adults, they are often placed in transitional living accommodations that don’t provide the support they require, leaving them traumatized and unable to function normally.
Give Mentor Love is creating the Village, a holistic living and learning environment for survivors of sex trafficking. The Village offers survivors the necessary support, healing, and housing, along with life skills training to help them transform their lives. Give Mentor Love’s goal is to empower these survivors to break free from their past and build a brighter future.
Adela Estrada, CSEC Program Administrator for LA County:
“We are in need of homes in LA County that can house these youth so that they have a safe place to live with the consistent guidance and support they need to heal, recover, and learn the skills needed to live independently and as contributing members of society.”
A World of Fear Turned Into a World of Wonder
GIVE – MENTOR – LOVE Foundation is sincerely grateful to all of our sponsors, donors and supporters. Together we raised $833,000 for the victims of sex trafficking and in-crisis youths and young adults we serve at our annual fundraiser on October 1st.

My prom night was amazing, and it wouldn't have came true without GML 💚
I would not be here without your help. All of you gave me a sense of hope and care which is something that I lacked for many years of my life. I want to say thank you for believing that I could do something with my life and for always being so kind to me. Thank you.
Thank you for supporting me even after I emancipated. I have talked about my goals for years and with all your support and words of encouragement I received and still receive from all of you, I am working hard towards my dream, to become a surgeon. Receiving my first white coat has been a great accomplishment. I hope you know how much all of you have impacted and changed my life for good. I appreciate you and will always be grateful to you.
I was hungry you - don't even know. I appreciate you for always helping when I really need it. Thanks
