What inspires you about CHC's mission?
CHC saw the need to help these girls and found a way to address a huge problem. For most folks, this undertaking would be too overwhelming, even impossible. But many sacrifices have gone into helping these girls, specifically, this age group, to find necessary resources. As mothers of teenagers, we know that age 18 does not mean a person can make it alone. None of us can make it on our own.
What is one thing you want the community to know about CHC?
The Quillow project is a great representation of CHC. It’s a big warm hug with some of the necessities and resources, ready and waiting to help a girl get back on track. People of all ages and backgrounds lovingly give their time and effort to help.
What is one thing you want the community to know about sex trafficking?
Sex trafficking is an epidemic and affects our whole society whether people know it’s happening or not. the only way to fight this horrible dark shadow is to join together and shed light and love. We refuse to look away!
How can others help spread awareness?
Others can help spread awareness by learning to pay attention and look others in the eyes. If we see something, we can do something about it. We have support from local law enforcement. We can turn this despair into hope.
How can the community connect with CHC and make a greater impact?
Be on the lookout for service opportunities...our monthly Quillow Sewing Party at Bolt's & More brings neighbors, families, and friends together for a few hours. The smiles are huge and the energy is positive because we are making a difference one Quillow at a time. Be creative, make it a fun event for friends, schools, and family. Collecting and assembling hygiene kits is another great way to send love to these girls. Allocate your state tax donation to CHC and precious resources will be made available to make a great impact. Who knows where the light will shine?
