As the husband of the founder of Beauty from Ashes™ Ministries, as well as the Vice President of the organization, I have truly been amazed to watch how through Julie's diligence it has grown and developed since its establishment in 2005. Starting nearly 10 years ago as a simple outreach to deliver gifts to help exotic dancers, Beauty From Ashes™ has become so much more. From providing encouragement to those trapped in, trying to escape from or struggling to stay free of the adult entertainment industry to spreading awareness about the scourge of Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking and the impact it is having on our country today, Beauty from Ashes is bringing the highest levels of professionalism and integrity to every aspect of their victim-centered services. I cannot recommend this organization highly enough to anyone who needs aid in this area or anyone who has a heart to get involved and help to change others' lives.
