An Urgent Message from Breaking Free Founder and Executive Director Vednita Carter
Dear Friends of Breaking Free:
Happy summer to you all! I want to let know about an incredible opportunity for you to partner with Breaking Free to end sex trafficking.
Many of you may remember that last year at this time we asked you to work with us so we could buy the building at 778 University Avenue to expand our office space. I want to thank each and every one of you who responded so quickly and contributed.
This summer we have good news, bad news, and then some more good news for you:
The good news is that this year we have once again expanded our services to help women and girls escape prostitution.
The bad news? We are facing a major challenge: we're growing so quickly that we're again running out of room for our survivors, their children, and our staff and volunteers. We don't have enough space for the many survivors who attend our weekly educational and support groups, with many women having to stand during groups. Staff members are doubling and tripling up in small offices that don't allow for one-on one-privacy with clients.
But there's more good news! We have the opportunity to purchase an office building just three blocks from our two houses in St. Paul where we are currently located. The new office has 5,000 plus square feet, which is ample space for all client-related services and will allow us to grow for many years to come.
We have secured the majority of the funding for this new property that will help us save countless lives but we need you to join us to raise $80,000 in July. Let's join together and act quickly!
Will you consider partnering with Breaking Free so we can continue to grow and provide desperately needed services to survivors of sex trafficking? This is your opportunity to positively impact the lives of women and children escaping the life of sex trafficking.
