Who is Vulnerable?
Awareness is where action and empowerment begin.
ARK2Freedom is actively involved in our local community. We provide human trafficking awareness tables at school and community events. We host a pop-up store that sells items made by Human Trafficking survivors. We also host an annual art show designed to give a voice to the under-reported and rapidly growing problem of human trafficking … modern slavery. If you would like ARK2Freedom to set up an awareness table or a pop-up store at your next community event, click on the following link.
As a ministry of Hope For The Hungry works alongside other ministries of Hope to bring individuals, victims of abuse, or survivors of trafficking to a place of abundance. When Christ restores, he always provides us with a better way, a better life, and a better future for ourselves and our loved ones. God's love must be at the heart of any restoration program. We minister to others through Bible study sessions, one on mentoring, and blessing bags. You can share love and help bring restoration into the life of others,
At ARK2Freedom, we believe that knowledge is the key to freedom. We train groups on how to equip themselves to be free and stay free from exploitation. We teach younger students about listening to their inner voice and how to recognize safe places, safe people, and safe choices. We work with middle schools to help students identify their vulnerabilities and to help safeguard students against the schemes that exploiters use on social media. We go into local high schools and talk to students about human trafficking, healthy relationships, and setting boundaries. We also work with church groups and community organizations.
