AIPSS Supports Promise of hope, a movement to end Human Trafficking
Our mission is to restore broken lives to wholeness, equip survivors to rejoin society and empower the community through knowledge.
Promise of Hope is an IRS approved 501(c)(3) nonprofit that operates out of Little Elm and Frisco, Texas. Promise of Hope was founded in early 2011. The purpose of Promise of Hope is threefold:
1. To fight aggressively to end Human Trafficking, also known as Modern Day Slavery.
2. To provide direct services to survivors of human trafficking.
3. To raise awareness about human trafficking, in order to prevent victimization, and to increase funding and resources for survivors.
WHAT WE DO
1. We support organizations who: directly intervene on behalf of survivors, prosecute perpetrators, and work to enforce and change legislation in the United States and abroad. We support these types of organizations financially and by prayer. One such organization is the A21 Campaign, which has offices in the United States and several countries where human trafficking is prevalent. Currently, our support for the A21 Campaign is chiefly from the proceeds from our Freedom Run Frisco.
2. We are in the planning phase of our Freedom Shelter that will be based in Frisco, Texas. The first phase of our shelter will focus on space to provide direct services to survivors such as: counseling, social services, life skills, etc. Phase one will offer a limited number of beds for full time residents. We are planning on construction of Phase one beginning in the fall of 2013.
3. We are currently providing educational resources through a number of different venues. We are providing GED classes to survivors. We are doing educational lectures at colleges and high schools to raise awareness of the issues and to teach warning signs to potential victims.
