Started in 2007, Sak Saum is a ministry that offers rescue, rehabilitation and restoration to vulnerable and exploited women who have experienced firsthand the devastation of trafficking.
Our desire is to help the abused, the underprivileged, the desperate — those unseen by the majority of humanity but worthy of being deeply loved.

She’s Worth It! is treasure hunting for a new, innovative project – the Sak Saum Spa as well as for a US Distribution Center
The Exodus Road (Like them on FB and follow on twitter @theexodusroad)
The Exodus Road exists to empower the rescue of victims of sexual slavery. Operating primarily in Southeast Asia, we believe that a major component of fighting human trafficking and child slavery lies in working with local law enforcement to find situations of trafficking and to then assist in the rescue of victims and the prosecution of criminals. By decreasing the profitability of the trafficking industry for the criminal, we will eventually slow the mechanisms that make the exploitation of women and children so lucrative.
The Exodus Road is not a single investigative organization, but rather it is a network of surveillance teams and individuals, committed to fight trafficking, one legal court case at a time.
She’s Worth It! is treasure hunting for 4 investigations (Bekah)
The mission of the Klein Frank Foundation, a 501c(3) non-profit corporation, is to stop human trafficking whether it be in the sex trade or indentured labor through these values. We are here to inspire, support, grow, and succeed together.
She’s Worth It! is treasure hunting for a phone app linking ALL US healthcare providers to trafficking screening tools in ALL languages, for a training video to be distributed across the US to help professionals recognize the signs of trafficking and for a Colorado State Employee to manage the fund comprised of fines generated from Johns for police and restoration programs.

Because Every Mother Matters (Like them on FB)
In March of 2012 we launched a therapeutic safe house for girls and women who were/are at risk of being sexually exploited. Individuals identified for enrollment into Sada’s house have been referred the program by local authorities and partners. At Sada’s house these girls and women can be given a safe environment where they can grow to be healthy and happy young ladies. Each individual will undergo a health assessment and be entered into appropriate medical care, including HIV treatment. Those of school age will be given the opportunity to attend school and the girls will participate together in learning basic household skills. After completion of the program, the young women will be transitioned into either foster care or the Momma sponsorship program (if appropriate). Time at Sada’s house allows these young women to heal, learn skills, be a part of a “family” and most important to be girls, women…. The beautiful spirits that they were created to be. To have fun, laugh, be nurtured and live a life without fear.
She’s Worth It! will be treasure hunting to help fund Sada’s House (Marissa)
