Our partners are so important to our work! Meet Lillian Ryals, our new Partner Engagement Coordinator. 🔻 As part of our new Partner Engagement Program, we offered partners a van tour of areas where we are seeing trafficking occur. One of our partners had this to say, "The NOVA-HTI staff was professional and discerning in bringing us into
the stories that are behind the evil. Seeing the places made the experience more realistic and moving. We now have a greater understanding and more heartfelt prayers for the victims, as well as the perpetrators." #endhumantrafficking www.novahti.com

"It was a chilly, winter evening in Herndon, VA, as I sat in the backseat of an SUV. I was on a stakeout with a few friends, waiting to see if any men would head into the illicit massage parlor to solicit sex from trafficked women." 🔻 In case you missed this blog, read more here ➡️ https://www.novahti.com/justice-summit-blog #endhumantrafficking

A client we have worked with for 3 years and was trafficked as a child recently found out that someone close to her was being sexually exploited. She immediately went to police to file a report. She said," I am not going to let what happened to me happen to anyone else." We are so proud of her! #faithjusticefreedom

During phone outreach this month, volunteers calling women who are posted on sex service websites reported several encouraging conversations in which the women were receptive. This is very exciting as we continue to plant seeds and let women know we are available to assist them when they are ready. 🔻 Learn more about how to get involved: https://www.novahti.com/ambassador-program

Thanks to the trusted relationship between mentor and client, we were told that our client’s trafficker resurfaced. Without delay, we took steps to get her safe and out of his reach. Law enforcement immediately opened an investigation, and hours later we were packing up our client’s belongings and moving her to a nearby shelter to ensure her safety.

We offer services to many clients who are trying to have a normal life after trafficking. 🔻 A recent success story involved the simple task of getting a drivers license. Our case manager provided a practice driving course so that a client could feel ready to take her test. Because this survivor was trafficked at such a YOUNG age, she was not able to do the things that the average teenage gets to do...like learn how to drive. She was nervous about taking this next step, but she went on to pass her test! She was able to get a car so that she could go to work and provide for herself. #faithjusticefreedom #endhumantrafficking Learn more: https://www.novahti.com/victim-services
