Volunteer Opportunities: Yes
With our current infrastructure, we are capable for caring for up to 200 rescued children. We provide a loving, caring, family atmosphere that will meet the following needs for these children: food, shelter, clothing, education, social/life skills training, medical, life planning, and liaison to legal services.
We also collaborate with other agencies to provide additional services including but not limited to, counseling, equine therapy, art classes and social outings.
By first meeting the physical needs of the girls, then earning their trust, we are able to build loving, trusting relationships with them while helping each girl heal both emotional and spiritual pain. At FACESS, our desire is to restore to these children the life and childhood that was stolen from them by providing relationships, mentorship, family-style outings and activities.
"FACESS (Freeing American Children from Exploitation and Sexual Slavery) is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to the care of young girls who have been rescued from sex trafficking and slavery here in the United States. It is an unfortunate misconception that this is not a problem that occurs in the U.S. But the truth is that the victims of child-sex-trafficking are from every state and every walk of life."
