INsideOUT is established, “to bring awareness and understanding of human trafficking to our communities instilling a commitment for action to benefit those impacted.” Our programs are a collaboration of nation-wide trainings from leading organizations working to eradicate human trafficking in America. INsideOUT’s focus is on helping youth 18 and under. We believe we can equip youth to recognize signs of human trafficking in an effort to protect them and our community through a multi-tiered approach of building a healthy mentorship-relationship with victims and at-risk youth, teaching recognition of behavioral triggers, and educating the diverse aspects of human trafficking.
Salon service- we provide low cost quality services to the general public at a suggested donation price. No one is turned away. Through the services we are able to support the programs of the organization through teaching our clients about the work we do to bring awareness, education, and resources to our community and victims of human trafficking
awareness event- our community awareness events use education through resources such as media, and guest speakers to educate our community on the dangers of human trafficking and how it effects us locally. We offered our event free to the community.
thailand trip- our staff of licensed hair stylist provided continued education to girls rescued from human trafficking in thailand. Girls in the cosmetology program have been rescued, rehabilitated, and are working towards sustainable living through learning a skills that help them live successful lives. We were able to use our skills to encourage the work they were already doing and teach classes to them to help add to their skills. We also provided hair cuts to staff, orphans, and girls in the rescue programs.
general program- insideout's general program provides resources for families in our community in need of help whose children have been involved in human trafficking. We help them by finding treatment centers, and provide emotional and financial support as they go through the process of finding healing.
I was introduced to this organization by a friend who was attending one of their informational meetings. That night I had my eyes opened to the sex trafficking world. I had no idea how large this epidemic was! My heart was touched by the conviction those running this organization have. I have since donated when I am able and tried to share the information with others in my circles. The Treasure Valley is so blessed to have this great group amongst us. I pray that as a community we can join them to fight this battle and win!!
