WHAT IS OUR MISSION?
“For the One. This is the jewel, the calling that dropped into the heart of this ministry at the beginning of our journey. Although it has had many meanings along the way, it continues to direct and refocus us on “The One” right in front of us. The number of sex trafficking victims is daunting, but there is a calm and groundedness in knowing we are all called to the one. It is the heartbeat of all that we do and all that we are.”
- Toya Kaplan (Founder)
In addition, one of our primary missions is to change the way the public views human trafficking victims. We push the reality of how human the victims are by asking you to imagine if it was your daughter, your son, your neighbor, your sister or your brother trapped in sex slavery. As our heart beats for the one, we promote a healthy dose of how human each victim really is, and how it could have been any one of us.
AWARENESS and PREVENTION
AWARENESS: Our Awareness Presentations involve the following two options;
Human Trafficking 101
To learn more about training opportunities visit: Awareness Presentations
PREVENTION: Until we realize this is a real issue happening in our backyards, we cannot change it. Our Awareness Presentations are fully based on statistics and truths gathered from specialists in this field, regarding the sex slavery industry. With this information, we equip the public and their friends/family with knowledge and tools to identify trafficking as well as protect themselves from it. Let’s prevent our children from trafficking before it happens by giving them these tools as well.
ASSISTANCE: For the One serves survivors of human sex trafficking. Through finances raised by our Fund Freedom banana bread and supporters, we are able to assist women who are on the last stage (Phase 3) of their journey from recovery to successful, independent living.
As we have discovered through our previous Freedom House transitional housing program, assistance in this stage is absolutely necessary. If these women do not have support during this transition, they risk becoming vulnerable again.

MENTORSHIP: Our organization provides support through mentorship for survivors, in addition to the mentor/case manager they already have. Mentors have weekly meetings, coffee, dinners, etc. to show consistency and genuine love for these survivors.
Mentors are hand selected and are required to have extensive training.
