January 2018
This year, WTLC's 2018 resolution is to stay in touch with YOU , the people who make our services possible.

So welcome to our Monthly Newsletter!

Here you'll be kept up to date on the ways your support is making a difference to the survivors of domestic violence and human trafficking in our community.

We truly believe that the key to ending the cycle of violence and exploitation is through community--and we are excited to continue to partner with you in the coming year.
Have you seen the blue ribbons this month?
January is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, and you might have seen ther blue ribbons to raise awareness of this common but often overlooked crime.

Human Trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery in which a person is forced to provide some type of labor, domestic servitude, or commercial sex act against their will.

Orange County is second only to Los Angeles County in the state of California in number of annual Human Trafficking cases, due to a number of factors including the county's wealth and status as a tourist destination.

WTLC's Human Trafficking Program works with survivors and their families to support all aspects of their recovery. Survivors have access to emergency shelter and housing support to regain stability, they attend one-on-one and group counseling sessions to process and recover from the trauma of their situations, and they work with Legal Advocates to navigate the court system with confidence.
Your commitment to ending the cycle of violence and exploitation made all the difference this past year. Because of your support, over 1,400 survivors were able to pursue recovery in through emergency shelter, at WTLC's Center, or in the comfort of their own home.

We look forward to continuing to work together to make our community safer for all of its residents in 2018!
