Books Beauty and Business welcomes Lara Coursey, a volunteer and mentor at Rescue Houston. Listen to the podcast below as she talks about her story and how to get involved.
At Rescue Houston, our answer is simple. Love. Untwisted, pure love for those trapped in sexual bondage is what motivates every policy, program, and service we provide. Love is why we will always answer the phone, plan an exit, and journey with each client through their continued care placement, no matter how many times she or he calls our 24/7 hotline.
The Rescue Houston hotline deploys exit teams and provides trained advocates that are available to victims of sex trafficking and sexual exploitation 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Our process uniquely bridges the gap between varied grassroots digital, telephonic, and neighborhood outreach efforts and the restoration programs and resources that are available to survivors, locally and nationwide.
As sex trafficking has progressed and become increasingly sophisticated, so have our counter sex-trafficking efforts. Along with our hotline and exit process, our advocates educate, equip, and collaborate with teams in our community to identify and engage the sexually exploited among us. We know our role in the landscape and recognize that it takes each one of us working side by side to free those in bondage and abolish sex slavery in Houston.
So whether you’re an established abolitionist, organization, or individual that is just getting started, we offer you our hand and an invitation. Please join us today as a strategic partner, volunteer or financial partner to provide hope, freedom, and new life to victims of sex trafficking and sexual exploitation. The opportunity for their freedom is huge, and just a click or call away.
