Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Education, Human Services, Victims Services

Mission: The mission of GO:61 is to bring a future and a hope to people who live in exploited and oppressed situations. Our goal is to accomplish this by offering the Gospel and relief to people in poverty and oppressive circumstances; providing prevention services to prevent people in high-risk situations from being exploited and dehumanized; and to provide intervention, rescue, and restoration services for people who have been victimized and exploited. Due to the nature of human trafficking, much of our efforts will be focused on finding, rescuing and restoring people caught in this industry. Our goal is also to educate communities about injustices against vulnerable people and to mobilize the communities and churches to stand on behalf of oppressed individuals. GO:61 was named for the Scripture Isaiah 61. We believe God intended us to GO and live out His Scripture so His name may be praised throughout the nations and in the darkest places where people are hidden, bound and oppressed.

I had no idea human trafficking was happening in my own community until GO:61 team members gave a presentation at my church. Since that presentation, I’ve attended several trainings and meetings and have learned so much from this organization. They are not trying to put a bandaid on the human trafficking problem; they’re trying to fix it from the inside out. They are raising awareness, educating the community, working with law enforcement and government agencies, and serving and restoring the victims of trafficking. They have a vision for a world without slavery, and a passion that is undeniable!

GO:61 is an amazing organization that is working hard to reclaim people from modern day slavery. Human trafficking is a terrible, horrific thing than many do not know is going on in their own cities. Because of the education I received from GO:61, I am aware, and now volunteer with them to help prevent this from happening in our communities. I am thankful this is a faith-based organization because I believe that faith plays a vital role in restoration and healing of those who have been victims of human trafficking and exploitation. Check them out, find out more, and then join the fight!

I’ve been blessed to work with GO:61 for a year to year and a half. GO:61 offers help, hope, and love to our community in so many ways that are needed such as blessing bags filled with food, socks, shampoo, feminine products, and so on to our homeless population. The leaders and volunteers are truly geniune, loving, and caring people who support one another as we serve our community. GO:61 educates the community about injustices and dangers occuring in our neighborhoods; fuels rescue by adopting high risk areas; and restores victims of exploitation and human trafficking by offering mentoring to those who want to receive it! If you want to impact your community positively, this is an organization to look into!
