“It just broke my heart and I began to look into it,” she said. “We have a missions-focused ministry with young girls at our church and that’s really how it got started for us. A lot of people in our congregation had their hearts broken over this and they have just really taken this up as a cause to help Traffick 911 be able to rescue and restore these girls.”
Traffick 911’s website, has more information about the organization and Triumph House, including a list of items the safehouse will need to get on its feet. Those interested in donating can use Triumph House’s registries with Target and Bed, Bath and Beyond as a resource for buying much needed items as well.
“Communities and individuals everywhere have been able to hop on board as far as getting it open,” Speed said of Triumph House. “Anything as small as three dollars to a riding lawnmower for the property. It’s a really cool way that so many people can get involved.”
