The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Raising funds and awareness to support the rescue and recovery of our community’s sexually exploited youth.
The core of StolenYouth’s approach is an innovative coalition model comprised of highly effective, local organizations. With our grants, these organizations are saving lives by providing critical services, training law enforcement on victim-centered intervention, and educating key stakeholders on prevention.
By supporting this diverse set of organizations, each using unique strategic approaches, we have built a 24/7, survivor-centered, continuum of care for young people identified in the sex trade.

I would likely recommend this organization to friends, families and others because I believe anyone and everyone can make a difference by helping the community. No matter what, you can always give a helping hand. Helping one another would and will be valuable because it will validate what you already believe for you and for others.
