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 to leave...

Retracing Impact

If you’ve ever gone for a jog and used a running app, then you know how much fun it is to hobble back (if you’re like me…) from your little journey and look at the map and see all of the places you went. If you’re like me, then you set out on your jog with an idea of where’ll go, but not an exact direction. So you start jogging and turn down one street, then go down another, and then another. The one location I’m sure of when I head out for a jog is the place where I start.  Often times, that’s the way it is when you decide to take action - you don’t know all the...

Operation Cross Country

Last week we participated alongside Green Bay law enforcement in Operation Cross Country 10 - an annual, nationwide operation conducted by the FBI. We had five Outreach Team members that were on-call to meet with victims who wanted help over a period of three days over a period of three days. It is incredible to see how our local law enforcement is approaching this issue head on. We were also invited to be a part of the press conference after the sting, and you can view the press conference and read more about the operation here.     Here's a quick rundown of what took place at the operation.     THE GIRLS We responded to a female adult and female juvenille that...

Stories of Hope: Finding Home

We recently served a young lady who was removed from a trafficking situation by law enforcement. When we came to her, she was very reserved and resistant to any help. After talking with her for several hours, she admitted that she wanted to leave “the life” and agreed to accept our help.    We were so excited for the opportunity to help this young lady get to a safe place! In the middle of the night, we drove her to an emergency shelter where she could stay until we found permanent placement for her. We worked hard to find somewhere for her to go and within a day we had her on a plane to a program out of state....
