WOTV 4 WOMEN NETWORK NIGHT
Wednesday Oct. 24th from 5-8pm | Standale Interiors
Women are invited to attend (cost is free, registration required) and this event includes complimentary snacks, sips, desserts, a fashion show, networking, shopping and great resources for career women. Be sure to bring your purse because we’ll be featuring lots of fun shopping vendors including jewelry, clothing and more! Guests will be asked to bring items to donate for Sacred Beginnings “Blessed Bags” which are passed out on to women who are victims of trafficking on the streets of West Michigan.
Sacred Beginnings is the first survivor-led outreach and recovery program in the state of Michigan for women who have been sexually exploited/trafficked. Sacred Beginnings Founder and Executive Director Leslie King is, herself, a survivor of human trafficking. Coerced into prostitution at the tender age of 15, Leslie spent over 20 years exploited, addicted, and trapped. In 2000 Leslie miraculously found the strength and the courage to break free, and committed her life to rescuing and rehabilitating women just like her.
Leslie and her team of Survivor Sisters hit the streets of Grand Rapids three times a week—rain or shine—searching for women trapped in exploitation and prostitution. During these outreach efforts, the team: Distributes Blessed Bags filled with personal care items, Scripture, food, and water. Hands out contact cards with Leslie’s personal number to call when they’re ready to leave the streets. Prays with each woman.
