Whatever We Can Do, However Long It Takes

  What do letters, coffee, self-defense, and tattoo removal have in common? They're an example of the fact that we will do whatever we can do to ensure that a young lady feels supported on her journey to healing and independence! To illustrate this, allow us to tell you the story of one of our precious young ladies. December 2015… we were given a referral from the chaplain at the local county jail, asking us to meet with a young inmate who had been involved in trafficking for quite some time. Naturally, we jumped at the opportunity! We met with her and she shared with us her story of being trafficked, that she grew up in foster care, had no...

Finding Freedom Inside A Jail Cell

  What does Eye Heart World do?  How can we help girls?  Do you provide any services?   These are all questions that we answer on a regular basis.  Instead of answering them, let me share a story of one of the girls that we helped. We received a referral from our contact at the jail, she had an 18 year old female inmate who had been involved in trafficking with a pimp and wanted to get out of the life.  I got a team of two Outreach Team members to respond and go to meet with her.   I spoke with the ladies after their meeting and both of them felt strongly about helping this young lady and described her desire...

Why Awareness?

  Why Awareness? We live in a culture that is saturated with messages. At any given moment, someone is trying to sell me laundry detergent, a new car, or some medicine that sounds like it could apparently kill me.  Then you add social media into the mix… It all makes my head spin. So with so many messages being thrown at us every single day, why do we place such a focus on awareness? Because evil is allowed to live in the shadows of ignorance.  Here is the fact:  Awareness alone changes nothing, but nothing can change without awareness.  We as a community, culture, and society cannot respond to an issue that we don’t know exists. The old adage “ignorance...
