The most prominent of Susan’s many accomplishments is board membership of Hope City United. Susan’s ardent belief in justice and righteousness pushed her to help join this non-profit organization to help control and prevent the atrocious prevalence of sex trafficking across the US.
Sex trafficking stands second in the world’s largest organized crimes. Young, innocent children are kidnapped and trafficked for slavery or human pleasure, scarring their life forever. Studies reveal almost half the children trafficked are as young as age 12 with half a million victims every other year! Imagine a young innocent person being taken and exploited physically. Imagine a child robbed of its natural tendency to smile, laugh, play, and live.
501(c)(3) organization Hope City United feels that the psychological recovery is vital is the first step in overall recovery, and seeks to spread awareness about the atrocities of sex trafficking.
It believes in a three-step process:
1. Recovery – The child should mentally be rescued from the dark abyss that was his/her life prior rescue
2. Heal – mental and physical scars should seal and heal
3. Grow – with stable ground established, growth is the next stage.
