New Florida Safe House (Started by Emily Fitzpatrick?) in Miami
The LoF Center (Life of Freedom Center) is a new local community services provider, based in Miami, offering rescue, support and rehabilitation programs for female survivors of sexual exploitation and human trafficking. The facility is set to open Tuesday, June 26th at 7pm, at a ribbon cutting with a ribbon cutting reception. The first facility of its kind in Miami, The LoF Center, was inspired by a vision of SOL.Media Network and Resources.“Miami is a hub city of international and domestic human trafficking,” said Jorge Veitia, founder of SOL.Media Network and Resources, Inc. “Many girls, listed as missing children, are captured by or found escaping from sex traffickers.  Often abandoned by their families, these minor and young adult women are in desperate need of basic physical, emotional and spiritual care.”   Located at 3119 Coral Way, Miami FL 33145, the LOF Center is a 1500 sq. ft. service facility, containing open space and meeting rooms for workshops and class instruction in life and job skills. Survivors referred to the LoF Center attend workshops hosted by volunteer mentors from the community that have completed a 15 hour orientation course and have a passed a criminal background screening. The extensive orientation and training is an important step in preparing volunteers to grasp the complex nature of building long-term relationships with women and children that have survived the trauma of human trafficking.A core program to be offered at the LoF Center is Fields of Hope – a leadership program for survivors. Fields of Hope offers a 3 month “paid” educational fellowship for survivors, ages 16-25. Through mentoring and training, survivors learn to make hand-made products and develop their talents and skills in a safe and nurturing environment. Fields of Hope clients work through a variety of curriculum each week that include teaching on topics such as business ethics, teamwork, attitude, personal goal plans, and other core qualities for success.  Clients can be referred to the Fields of Hope program through Miami area agencies that serve victims, such as Project Gold with Kristi House. After the client completes the application process, an agency or law enforcement can testify that she is a survivor of human trafficking, and her counselor signs off on her paperwork agreeing that she is receiving weekly counseling, the client can begin Fields of Hope at the LoF Center. Fields of Hope was developed by On Eagles Wings Ministries, a service provider based out of Asheville, NC that has been assisting victims of trafficking through shelter and outreach since 2008. On Eagles Wings Ministries operates two of the nations few shelter programs for survivors of sex trafficking. The shelters, Hope Houses, serve domestic clients ages 12 – 25. On Eagles Wings Ministries also runs a successful outreach call center called Rahab’s Hope and contact over 1,000 females per year. These females are posing as escorts on various websites, however, Rahab’s Hope has found that about 80% of the females called are under pimp control. Fields of Hope is a much needed addition to the services that On Eagles Wings Ministries provides to better prepare survivors, hold them accountable to their goals, and give them more tools in their toolbox so that they can move beyond the exploitation, gain self worth, and prevent relapse – which can be common if appropriate resources are not provided. Proceeds of the fundraising benefit will benefit the Fields of Hope program, which is scheduled to start their first class in July of 2012. The more funds that Fields of Hope can raise, the more clients they can accept. The hors d’oeuvre reception will feature live music, a silent auction, special guest Jeanette Rubio, wife of Senator Rubio, and inspiring survivor testimonies. The Founders of Sol.Media and On Eagles Wings will be sharing the vision with guests during the event.

Tickets to this event can be purchased on Eventbrite, at www.solmedia.net or by calling             828-429-0107       to RSVP no later than June 15..

The public health community is just beginning to understand the inherent connections between substance abuse, sexual abuse and prostitution. Someone who is suffering from one of these issues will be more likely to suffer from another, if not both of the other issues. In other words, they are mutually enforcing. We know from experience by outreaching to those who suffer from substance abuse or who have been prostituted that we will reach survivors of sexual violence. This program bridges gaps in current services and leads to a holistic approach for victims of sexual abuse who have been prostituted and dealing with substance abuse issues.

ICA has since been working to open our first U.S. Safe Home in St. Louis, MO. The home has been secured and most of the funds raised. The first U.S. home will consist of 6-8 beds and incorporate a complete holistic approach of rehabilitation for girls ages 17-24 years old. ICA is working closely with federal and local law enforcement officials for the identification and placement of these girls. ICA hopes to become the first choice of where to send girls that they rescue during law enforcement operations. Once the first home is operational and going well, ICA plans to next begin working on a Safe Home for American minors (under 17 years old).

Back to School Outreach

Every year, we provide back to school supplies for the Mom’s who are working in the clubs.  This will be our third year of helping the children of sex industry workers.  

By helping the children of the women who currently work in the sex industry, we help the family, build trust and forge relationships.  It is so rewarding to see the smiles on the faces of the women when they get all their backpacks for their kids.

Born to Party Foundation: Using the Power of Love with Sex Workers

God’s calling card is Love.  Unconditional love that He just pours out over the undeserving.  Undeserving people like me and you.   A love so deep and so wide that once we taste it, we will do anything to possess it.  His love gives life, it changes lives.  Love is the absolute essence of God.  The way I see it, is that if we are to become imitators of God, we need to become His calling card, the embodiment of love.

We all know the verses from 1 Corinthians 3:3-13,  the famous love chapter in the bible.  4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.8 Love never fails….13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.   This is the model of our ministry.
