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 is straight forward, and gets the attention we needed in helping to find our daughter. She is still missing, but we know in our hearts that whatever Michelle and her team can do, they would be right there. I think this organization is wonderful in every aspect of their work. I have learned so much, and have all the respect for the organization. Even when they decide it's time to back away from a case, I believe they do everything within their means, and will do whatever you need from them. Michelle has the knowledge and knows the people to reach in every corner if that is what she wants or feels is necessary.

Thank you Barb for the kind words. Lisa’s case will always be near and dear to our team and we hope those that took over the case will bring closure and answers to you and the family. We know people without a doubt knows what happened to Lisa, it will depend on the “powers that be” in higher law enforcement to continue to work towards a conclusion; Lisa deserves it and so does her daughter, parents, brother and all her friends and family. Our organization, although committed to helping your family, unfortunately found ourselves being asked to allow the higher authorities within the FBI and other agencies to take over where our investigation ended, so in the end we are hoping those agencies are assisting in bringing answers to where your daughter is and what happened to her. Shelley and her team are always here if you should need further support from our organization. What happened to Lisa is apparent to the evidence that was ignored, we pray the Senator and the agencies he enlisted will have more information for you in the near future. Our hearts and prayers are with you and Lisa’s entire family!

A few years ago NWCAT was my introduction to the issue of sex trafficking. It has inspired me to become an advocate and do what I can to increase awareness on this horrific issue.

Michelle and Shelley are amazing. My son went missing back in 2011 and without the help of this organization I would have never been able to find my son's body. These people are a god sent and I thank them with all my heart. The power they have with the media is amazing to keep my son in the spotlight in order to bring him home. Hopefully one day I can pay them back for all they had done for our family and they make me want to be a better person. Someday I would like to give back to this world the way this organization does. Thank you NWCAVE for all you do in this world to stop violence against women and keep our children safe. Love Kimberly Fox

Kim, your ongoing kind words over the years is heartwarming! Shelley and I were glad we could support you and your family in searching for your son. Your case will always be in our mind as we know the system let you and Charlie down, but in the end finding him was the objective and that was achieved. Although that can never bring his beautiful soul back, his smile is always looking down and guiding you in your journey on earth; to us, that is a comfort for all families who are reunited with their children. Sending you, your daughter and entire family our very best. Thank you again for the ongoing support!

Krystol, thank you for your kind words. Thank you for your recent support in writing the truth about our team members contracting brucellosis after searching for a missing person. They are both still very sick but are on the mend; your support getting their story out is much appreciated. While working with the late singer Whitney Houston in the 90’s she told me “…always be true to yourself Michelle and you will go far in life.” I pass those same thoughts onto you, be true to yourself Krystol and you will continue to go far in media and journalism. You are a “Voice for Justice” my friend! Thanks again!!

NWCAVE is an amazing organization whom you really can't put a label on because they go above and beyond their title! NWCAVE supported me mentally after I was profiled by the police in South Carolina and handcuffed because I am Black. They made sure I understood my rights as an American, helped me receive legal advice and were really the back bone to me specking out on what a issue Racial Profiling is in this country. Never was a phone call or email unanswered! I appreciate them always and I am open to help any way I can. Much respect and love Cherie Johnson

You are amazing Cherie! You and Dennis took a terrible situation of abuse and ended up having a voice for justice for all those that came before you and that will come after you; we just supported you with a few clicks and calls to the media that could help you in your quest for justice! Looking forward to seeing you on Dr. Phil today! Thanks again for the kind words and we look forward to working with you both in 2014!!

NWCAVE is an exciting concept in helping to bring violence against women and girls to make the public aware. When you hear about 12 and 13 year old girls being sold into the sex trafficing it makes one sick in the pit of their stomach. When you have known women who have been beaten by their spouse, you naturally want to help. Having been a victim of rape and mental abuse, my heart goes out to the women, girls, and boy who are forced into trading their bodies for money.

Helping to bring a child home to their family after being kidnapped is also very rewarding. The more these things are brought out into the open, the more hope we have making the world a more peaceful and better place to live.

Lastly, giving back to the community in which we live is a great feeling. The more one gives the better
you feel and gratifying feeling of helping you get.
