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.

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.

This organization is amazing! I attended their last event at the Hilton Vancouver Washington and learned so much along with meeting great people. There is no way to measure the value of getting a child back to their parents or helping those in violent situations. Michelle Bart is my hero!

Hero? Wow, thank you for the kind words, but in all reality we are just doing our part to bring kids home and be a voice for justice against the evils that prey upon society including those that do harm to our kids; the victims and survivors are our heroes, but thank you for the kinds words and review!!

Thank you for the kind words and review Irma! The feeling is mutual and we so appreciate our strong partnership with the YWCA Clark County. Being able to partner on having a voice for missing youth that are undocumented has been a new territory the past couple of years and so appreciate the collaboration with you to bring them home safe! Thanks again Irma, keep up the great job too!

I met Michelle Bart (Co-founder of NWCAVE) at a community event and was moved to tears when she told me of the exploitation and violence happening around us, largely unseen. Two months later, I saw a "Please Share, Missing Child" post on Facebook (Vancouver, WA) and then contacted the missing child's guardian. She had no experience in how to publicize a missing child, so I called MIchelle and asked her to get involved. The next day, the photo of that 13 year old girl (Patience Freimuth) was on the local TV news and featured prominently in the hometown newspaper. The girl was found safe and returned home. Words cannot express the value of knowing there is a resource that MAKES THINGS happen. This difficult work requires the involvement and contributions of the entire community, and the leadership of an organization like NWCAVE.ORG
