A HOMELESS WOMAN IS AN EXPLOITED WOMAN.
I will never forget chatting with a survivor of sex trafficking. She shared with me about the first night she was homeless. No one told her that a homeless woman cannot sleep at night. She said she was sleeping on a park bench when she was raped.
This week Host Opal Singleton interviews Samantha Eitner from the Orange County Rescue Mission. We will talk about why people are homeless and what can be done about it. We will also explore issues of addiction, unemployment, mental illness and how to create safe housing environments for women with children. And, we will talk about how you can volunteer to help the homeless in your community.
Join us Thursday, December 7, 2017 at 7:00 a.m. PST on VOICE AMERICA – Variety Channel as we explore how to work with the homeless population to prevent trafficking and exploitation.
“Like” Million Kids on Facebook to get involved so we can say together, “NEVER AGAIN SHOULD A CHILD BE VIOLATED!”
