i-5 Freedom Network
SWOT Team Meeting

 Tuesday, January 14, 2020
12:00 pm to 2:30 pm

The Barnabas Group is the only collaboration of leaders dedicated to maximizing ministry potential by meeting nonprofit challenges with business perspectives to advance Kingdom work .

Thousands of people are victims of human trafficking every year... in California. Estimates say there are hundreds of thousands of human trafficking victims in the US. 

When God prompted Brenda Wells to get involved, her goal was to make a difference in San Clemente. But God had a bigger vision. Since 2015, i-5 Freedom Network has been training hotel staff to recognize the signs of human trafficking; advocating for effective legislation; engaging corporations, churches, and community groups in the battle; and helping survivors. 

When a new CA law requiring hotel staff training on human trafficking awareness taking effect January 2020, (and more to follow across the country), the time is right for i5FN to pursue hotel staff training more aggressively. With her background in the hotel industry and as a corporate trainer (Dale Carnegie certified), Brenda speaks their language and has the credibility to make a difference. 

But marketing their products and services and creating a scalable, sustainable business model require additional skills!

So i-5 Freedom Network is asking Barnabas Group partners to provide input on this BIG QUESTION:

How do we demonstrate our value to the hospitality industry and create a sustainable revenue model?
