Review for Faces Of Child Abuse, San Antonio, TX, USA
When I was the Executive Director of Trafficking in America Task Force, Inc. (a non-profit organization in Nashville, TN) I coordinated the first Press Conference in that city and others in TN and NC for the purpose of forming collaborations between law enforcement from all branches, legislators, and non-profit organizations working to address human trafficking in their areas. After a few very successful events, I sought NGO's across the United States to partner with TIATF and to coordinate similar press conferences. Faces of Child Abuse (FOCA) was one of the first that stepped up to the plate. Paola Garcia (Founder of FOCA) and I discussed plans for their conference in San Antonio, TX. She went to work and coordinated a very successful event bringing together law enforcement, legislators, NGO's, and survivors of human trafficking in TX to discuss the priority issues and plan next steps to move forward as a cohesive team to prevent future abuse and bring education and awareness to San Antonio. I attended the event and could not have been more proud. Ms. Garcia was responsible for launching a collaborative effort between the main stakeholders, that to date, had not been achieved. i am proud to be able to share such a ground-breaking event in one of America's most crucial issues.
I have come to know Paola over the past 7 years since, and have found her to be one of the most credible NGO's in this field. Her integrity is solid, her love for children is genuine, and her motive is pure. I highly recommend this organization to any philanthropist seeking an organization with sound practices and mission.
