When I met Sheri, I knew I wanted to be involved and support her and her mission! She’s such an amazing women with so much courage, knowledge, passion, and wisdom! She has been a good friend and mentor! I’ve been working with her as a Birth Doula and she has so much heart for people and always sees the good in everyone! I’m proud to call her a friend, peer and mentor! She will do everything in her power to move mountains to make sure those in need feel loved, heard and safe! She has so many great ideas to help women and families in need, how could I (you)not support her!? I’ve seen several women in recovery from trauma, but they all smile when Sheri enters the room. She gives them a light in a dark place and a solid ground to take each step forward in the healing process!

I have had the pleasure of meeting with and hearing Sheri Lopez speak several times this year. I continue to be so moved by her passion and efforts to bring awareness to the rapidly escalating dangers of Social Media and Sex Trafficking. Her own life story, tells us how she had to live in this dark web and surviving. Her commitment to bring her first hand knowledge to all and to try to prevent young people from getting involved in the dark horrors of being Trafficked is to be commended and supported in every way. Thank you Sheri, for all you are doing to help others. You are truly a wonderful person! Susan Pitsenberger

Sheri Lopez was our guest speaker at our September S.T.O.P. meeting and shared with us how she was groomed into sex trafficking as well as the tragic years she was involved in it and how she was finally saved from it.
She brought insight and awareness to us all.
Especially how our youth is getting involved in it through their phone apps as well as the Internet.
It was a compelling 90 minutes, but truly appreciated Sheri sharing her story and her knowledge regarding sex trafficking.

I started working with Sheri this year as a volunteer birth doula. She pours her heart and soul into the mission of this non-profit and it truly shows. It is an honor working with her and working with these women - offering them love and support and education through the process of having a baby. Please consider sharing or making a donation so that we can reach even more women in need through our services.
