I would like to give you the honor of getting to know an amazing woman, Cynthia, and her unbelievable Tribe! Cynthia started an incredible non-profit ministry called Pole Gems. We reach out to people who are involved in adult entertainment. We offer counseling and brain mapping, we throw baby showers and baptisms, we offer help with resumes...whatever the need, we try to supply it. We have a monthly outreach where we take gift bags out to all the people who work in local strip clubs. We want these people to know that they have purpose, that they are loved, and that they have value. Being a survivor of human trafficking and a former adult entertainer, I can say from experience that a simple, handwritten note, from a complete stranger, letting me know that I had value and worth, may have gotten me out of that life sooner. I was beyond hopeless and like so many others, I turned to drugs and alcohol to try to take the pain, in my soul, away. I was in that life for 12 years. I have been out for 24. The damage that that industry can do to a human soul is gut-wrenching. Cynthia recognizes this and works tirelessly to make the changes that are needed in the community, she meets people where they are at, and she personally let's each person that we support, as well as the Pole Gems volunteers, know that they have worth, more than rubies...They are PRICELESS. Pole Gems is absolutely amazing
