How You Can Get Involved
To support our mission, three areas of concentration have been established to focus our efforts. These are Formation/Education, Advocacy, and Outreach/Partnerships. Each of the focus areas now have team members working on objectives that will guide our ministry. We have recently partnered with New Friends New Life, a local organization providing services for trafficking victims.
New Friends New Life Youth Resource Center – A new project, the Youth Resource Center will be a place of healing, restoration, services, new friends, and new life for youth in our community who have been victimized. Financial donations are needed to provide items for this new facility. Contact Terry or Mark Demler to donate.
Wednesday Evening Meals for Trafficking Survivors – we will serve dinner to 50 people at Preston Road Church of Christ five times during 2018. The evening before serving the meal, we will gather at Saint Michael to cook. Serving dates are January 10, July 11, September 12, October 24, and December 19. Register to cook or serve here.
Sex Trafficking Educational Bus Tour – A guided, mobile educational tour exclusively designed for select partners and supporters of New Friends New Life and conducted by the Men’s Advocacy Group. Tour travels to different venues throughout Dallas while Federal and/or State law enforcement agents discuss community case studies and activities at or near visited sites. During the 2-hour experience, attendees will learn the signs of possible trafficking and sexual exploitation activity and gain visual insight into the trafficking industry, especially in our own city. The tour aims to further understanding of the characteristics and pervasiveness of human trafficking and exploitation in Dallas. Material and live views may be disturbing. Some information may be restricted. Must be 18 years old to attend. This tour is scheduled for January 25 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Registration is now full!
