In the last two years, Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church has raised more than $65,000 to benefit The Salvation Army’s new transitional housing home in Montgomery County for young victims of human trafficking.

In addition to the new transitional housing program, New Day to Stop Trafficking provides victim services, such as case management, court accompaniment, and the operation of the New Day Drop-In Center in Philadelphia.  The Drop-In Center lifts victims up in their most difficult moments, giving them care to recover from emotional and physical trauma and support to start anew. Victims have access to essential items like food and clothing, along with a shower and laundry facilities. The New Day Drop-In Center is also a place for women to connect with staff members and other victims. For more information about the New Day to Stop Trafficking program, or to make a donation to this cause, visit www.SaPhilly.org.
