Match Your Dollar Today!

January 1 - February 1 is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month.

Millions of people around the world remain in bondage-among them, women and children forced into the sex industry, driven by poverty, abuse, and crime. We must resolve to act, and to act is to have compassion.

Whitaker/Ellis has challenged Compassion First Everyday Advocates to raise $50,000 in recognition of this month and in honor of women and children everywhere. For every dollar you give, they will match 100% (up to $50,000)! 

Being an Everyday Advocate means doing what you can, with what you have, for the sake of others; it means you have decided to walk alongside us, as we walk alongside women and children everyday. 

Here's what you can do this month:

  • Nefarious Screening: Open your home or find a venue to screen this eye-opening documentary with friends, colleagues, and family members. We have cleared it with the makers of Nefarious to accept contributions.
  • Give: Every dollar you give will be matched 100% (up to $50,000)!

We have until February 1, NATIONAL FREEDOM DAY, to reach our goal.

For the sake of others!

CF Protects Survivor Through Community Care Progra

Christmas at Ruth
Christmas at Ruth's House

After a year in the residential program at Ruth's House in North Sulawesi, Indonesia, Zhella* elected to enter into Compassion First's community-based program and move home. While the community-based program invites a higher risk set of circumstances for a survivor, it also is part of a progression for all survivors as successful graduation and reintegration are necessary steps toward the recovery of their future.

Risks understood, Compassion First staffers were there for Zhella. When a threshold of too many days without communication was crossed, her Case Worker quickly set up a home visit. In this setting of safety, Zhella was able to express that she felt the best place for her was back at Ruth's House.

Each child we serve is unique and requires an individualized plan that we own together with her. We count the journey with each one a sincere blessing. With the assistance of security and her Case Worker, Zhella returned to Ruth's House where she will likely stay until she goes to college or vocational training school. It is a story of provision for one. At the same time, it is a story of progress where a trafficking survivor is coming into a full understanding that she is the owner of her future.

We thank you for letting us serve these survivors who are on such an incredible journey. Our house is full. It's going to be a great Christmas! 

For the sake of others,
