NWCAVE is an organization near and dear to my heart not only because of my role on the Board of Directors, but because I've witnessed first-hand the impact it has had on our community. The resources we've been able to provide for those who have experienced sexual assault, domestic violence, exploitation, and many of the other persistent social problems that touch the lives of far too many lives has been humbling to say the very least. This is an organization that has consistently strived to create a safer community for all and I believe it has and continues to honor its mission with the upmost integrity, compassion, respect, and dedication.

NWCAVE has done a great deal to bring awareness about domestic violence and exploitation of women in our society. They have also worked with Washington State to being awareness to the backlog of sexual assault kits that remain unprocessed. We need more organizations such as NWCAVE to help raise our voice and continue to press for change in laws to provide equality in all areas of our culture.

As the Chief Invesigative Correspondent for Inside Edition, it has been both a pleasure and privilege to sit on the National Media Council for NWCAVE.

For years I have been impressed by the work Michelle Bart and her team have done on behalf of women, children and victims of violence and discrimination.

NWCAVE is an amazing organization of volunteers that are saying "NO MORE" to violence and human trafficking. The conferences, seminars, workshops and trainings that are put on to train, educate and advocate help the entire country to better understand violence/abuse and human trafficking while the collaborative work unites them with other like minded organizations and individuals who all know that there is power in numbers.

It is an organization that is dedicated to its mission and purpose with members that are passionate, knowledgeable and compassionate.

My experience with NWCAVE has been nothing but positive and inspiring. These community angels have a deep commitment in helping others in our community by empowering them with instruction, knowledge and awareness in a variety of ways. For example their workshops on how to spot someone being sex trafficked and knowing who to report it to so NWCAVE can swoop in and help the police. Or, their excellent self defense workshops. Or, the powerful key note speakers they have at their events. Every time you leave completely inspired. They do so much it would be hard to list them all.

KXRW Vancouver 99.9FM could not be happier to partner with such a worthy and wonderful organization as NWCAVE.

NWCAVE is dedicated to the community by way of several programs. I got to know it through Washington Says No More, a program with a mission to end domestic violence and sexual assault- which just recently saw State legislators support the bill to test the backlog of rape kits and shorten the time the kits are in the system before they are tested. Already; arrests are happening because of this testing.

Michelle Bart works tirelessly to provide support to women who have been victimized or exploited. It is heartbreaking to think that in this modern nation there is a need for such work, but there is, and that need is critical. To hear just of few of the stories from women Michelle and her organization has helped will, or should, drive you to support her in her courageous work.

NWCAVE put on a Human Trafficking Victims Advocate training that was absolutely fantastic. I learned so much and was so excited to be a part of that experience. Even though I wasn’t able to pay, living on a student income at the time, they gave me a scholarship to attend. Their organization is so dedicated and passionate about their work. As a now Masters level social worker, I will be taking that training into my professional life. I feel honored to know them and am so glad they work in our area!

As many have said, the dedication of Michelle Bart and NWCAVE is unmatched. I recently attended the No More Summit and was absolutely impressed with the speakers, trainers and participants. Michelle actually organized two conferences as the original dates in January were canceled at the last minute, due to weather.

She makes herself available whenever there is a need - I've never met a more tenacious individual. THANK YOU!

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!

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!

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.

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.

This is one of the most pro-active organizations I've ever seen when it comes to defending and protecting women and children from violence and sex trafficking.

Being an investigative professional for over 25 years I have had the unfortunate experience of seeing first hand how women and children are exploited and NWCAVE not only teaches, advocates and deters abuse but it also actively changes peoples lives in profound ways.

This group has helped with my Gift of lift without their involvement we would not have been able to send 1,000s of bras across the globe, they continue their involvement with assisting with fundraising as well as spreading the word on the importance of the organization, I am so pleased to have become involved with such extraordinary individuals through this group.

NW CAVE helps many women locally and around the world. It's run by a group of dedicated volunteers who work hard to collect bras in good condition to donate to women in third world countries to help them support their families.

It's been a pleasure being a part of NWCAVE's Dream...a wold without violence. At our Dinner & Dreams Gala this month hearing trafficked survivor Anji Dean speak about survival and crediting NWCAVE for helping her on this journey makes all we do worth it! Keep up the great work!

NWCAVE is a fantastic organization serving the Northwest in preventing violence and explotation of women and children. They are very professional and intensely dedicated to their cause. Michelle is extremely knowledgeable, and continues to increase that knowledge to keep current and help educate and inform others. This is a partnership helping the community's women, children and their families. We are truly blessed to have them, and Michelle, as a resource, agent and advocate.

My granddaughter was recently missing and this organization (NWCAVE) namely Michelle Bart was extremely helpful to my daughter and I . Our story ended well but many do not. Thank goodness there are people like Michelle and organizations like this to help people. It is really a helpless feeling and something you just don't have a clue on what to do by yourself. Thanks for being there Michelle.

Michelle Bart works tirelessly to help those that don't have a voice and she goes above and beyond to fight for the rights of others. I was invited to take part in the fun Gift of Lift event which was only one of many successful events she is a part of to benefit and support women on many levels.

I have had the opportunity to work with NWCAVE over the past few years, and the leaderships passion for protecting and serving their community is unparalleled.

The statistics of human trafficking are staggering, and while they are working with what can be the saddest demographic they have a very positive approach. These women are joyful educators, that jump into action on behalf of women and families at a moments notice.

Michelle and hear team are truly impressive pillars of the community. The service that they provide is invaluable!

Michelle Bart is phenomenal working with high risk youth and her resources are far reaching - many I had not heard of before, and I've been in the criminal justice field for 30 years. She was the first person I called when a 16 year old sexual assault victim was missing. She was able to meet with myself and the family within hours of my call. The youth is safe at home again, yet Michelle continues to have regular contact with myself and the family. Her passion is quite obvious and she works harder than anyone I know. This organization is a critical part of the Human Trafficking Task Force and we are very fortunate to have the headquarters here in Vancouver, WA. This is a non-profit very worthy of support.
