The Selah Way Foundation’s unique collaborative approach to combatting this issue has already brought about unprecedented success with over 8,000 survivors of sex trafficking and exploitation being served in the United States and Europe. Over 250,000 healthcare professionals and over 100 law enforcement agencies have been trained to identify and aid victims of this crime, to date. Over 25,000 children (and adults working with them) have been trained on how to stay safe from sex trafficking and abuse, with the goal of training 2 million in the coming years. For every $1 million invested in The Selah Way Foundation, $4.6 million is saved in incarcerations at a state level, as survivors are rehabilitated, 87% do not return to the streets. Internationally, the focus is Romania as that is the epicenter of trafficking in Europe. Over 82% of sex trafficking survivors in Europe are Romanian.
Thanks to the generous support of attendees, over $3.3 million dollars was raised to support the Selah Way Foundation’s life-saving initiatives.
“Sex trafficking is one of the fastest growing forms of organized crime. It is happening in all 50 states and worldwide. The only way to tackle this true evil and pervasive darkness is by locking arms in unity and getting out of our individual silos. The strategy of The Selah Way Foundation is aligning the best of the best each attacking the issue from a different angle. ‘Organized crime cannot be the only ones organized. It’s time to assemble one impenetrable army!'” says Elizabeth Fisher Good, Co-founder/ CEO of the Selah Way Foundation.
