It is a sad fact that tens of thousands of women and children are forced into sexual slavery in the United States every year. What can we do to help them leave their oppressors and find healing and a new life? Coming up on Equipped, we will hear from one lady who saw their need, heard God’s voice, and co-founded a home for their healing and restoration. Be informed and challenged to help trafficked women and children find a safe place in your community!
