Anyone will tell you working with Michelle Bart is a complete pleasure. We worked on the Women's Festival NW this past year. I appreciated her knowledge, professionalism and marketing experience. She far exceeded expectations in our marketing department on this event and the Premier Movie night of "Femme" the other fundraiser. Michelle is committed to NWCAVE personally and professionally. She works relentlessly and extensively in our community and nationwide for NWCAVE.

After 16 years out of the life, I unexpectedly reunited with my groomer at a meeting. NWCAVE has be a huge advocate on my journey dealing with my triggers, referring me to resources to get mental and emotional help, along with helping me stand up for myself and put closure to my situation. I appreciate the honesty and willingness to help. They are making tidal waves in our community.

NWCAVE steps in when law enforcement asks for this help with missing teens and teens returning from being trafficked. There is no other agency in the area that does this! We are so lucky.

NWCAVE recently offered support to a youth who had been rescued after several years old sex trafficking. Her family got to see her and know she is safe in a treatment facility. NWCAVE worked with multiple agencies, including the Sheriff's office and The Juvenile Court on this case. NWCAVE's work is critical and necessary.

The NWCAVE organization is a needed force in our community on so many levels. President, Michelle Bart knows the pulse of our community. Her organization swoops in to save young lives fallen victim to sex trafficking, and other types of domestic violence and abuse when the regular system is overloaded and unable to follow up. Her tireless nature to fight for the rights of others doesn't stop with just her worthy organization, but she jumps in with both feet to help other worthy nonprofits trying to make a difference as well, like KXRW, Vancouver's new independent nonprofit community radio on 99.9FM. NWCAVE.org is the epitome of what a "WE" society looks like versus a "ME" society. They are an inspiring role model for all of us to emulate and repeat...repeat...repeat!

NWCAVE has been an excellent partner and support to Children's Administration. They effectively promote their mission and the betterment of the community by supporting the children, families and agency's in and outside of our local community. I have personally had the privilege of working directly with Michelle in efforts to safely locate several missing and endangered run away children. It is truly an honor to work closely with Michelle in serving the families of Clark County.

They consistently see the big community picture as they also work effectively and efficiently on their own programs and services.

When we started NWCAVE never could we imagine the impact we have had for women, children and families. We have helped to find missing children, educated on violence in our society, collected over 12,000 bras for women and girls, trained media on how not to re-victimize victims when covering their stories and continue to be a resource for the community on keeping our kids and families safe.

We continue making a difference in Washington, Oregon and California and we could not do our work without the support of our volunteers, partners and donors. We thank all of you!

NWCAVE was born from passion to save lives, prevent violence and to be a voice for justice, especially for children. Our NWCAVE Missing Persons Division has made huge strides in assisting law enforcement and families in finding missing children. Recently, our partnerships with DSHS, Clark County Prosecutor's office and VPD have enhanced our ability to be a part of saving lives and watching kids get back on their feet.

Our annual conferences, SWCAT, NWCAT and No More Summit continue to bring people from all around the United States and beyond all with a common goal, to end violence in our society. The No More Summit happens this January, learn more at www.nomoresummit.org.

Thank you everyone for your testimonials and support over the years. We are making a difference for women, children and families and with your support we continue making strides in the communities we represent in Washington, Oregon and California and for this we thank you!

I am in awe of NW CAVE, Michelle Bart, her organization and her volunteers. She relentlessly works to help end the violence and suffering of so many that don't have a voice... and ALWAYS with a smile and a burst of energy that is contagious. For example, during the Pacific Northwest International Women's Festival earlier this month, she lent her hand, her voice, her expertise to spreading the word, increasing attendance, and making the event energized and vibrant. If she's in, she's all in! Thank you Michelle, for being you.

This past March the International Women's Festival Pacific Northwest honored 13 regional women who are making a positive impact in their communities. Michelle Bart and The National Women's Coalition Against violence and Exploitation was chosen as our Pebble Rebel Award winner. This award is granted as recognition of courageous, creative, and innovative solutions for challenges facing a community. NWCAVE is effectively raising awareness of, and helping to counter, sex trafficking in the Pacific Northwest one girl at a time.
