Our Next Big Focus:
Development of Safe Housing
GIVE – MENTOR – LOVE Foundation (GML) is focusing on the desperate and immediate need to develop a CSEC Transitional Aged Youth (TAY) house in Los Angeles County. As one of the nation’s most high intensity areas for the trafficking of children and young adults, one of the biggest challenges faced is establishing housing for those between the ages of 18-21 years old.
Adela Estrada, CSEC Program Administrator for LA County, explains the importance of securing these facilities:
“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.
