Catch The Wave of Hope helps educate area nonprofits
Catch the Wave of Hope (CTWH), the 501(c)(3) with the mission to prevent the sex trafficking of children through awareness, education, restoration and legislation, was honored by Kiwanis Club of Stuart as its Sept. nonprofit of the month.
Sarah Henry, Community Development Director of CTWH, gave a presentation on “Sex Trafficking 101”. She shared tools on how to identify, report and be aware of this heinous issue in Martin County and how members can safeguard themselves and their children.
Henry also accepted a generous monetary donation from Kiwanis Club of Stuart.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Martin County invited Catch the Wave of Hope to do a “Two-Minute Teach” to parents and families at student pickups. Henry talked about child exploitation and sex trafficking and distributed flyers and cards with a human trafficking hotline number and information on CWTH, its mission, vision, therapy services and how to protect their children.
Henry interacted with more than 100 families at the Hobe Sound, Port Salerno, Palm City and Indiantown Clubs.
Although most people are certain they know the telltale signs of sex trafficking, they’re often shocked when they are introduced to reality. Henry is available to speak to groups of any size and age to share the information and tips that Catch the Wave of Hope has amassed. Contact her at www.catchthewaveofhope.org.
