Growing up with in foster care, Kim’s journey began like many others – a tale of vulnerability and exploitation…
Through unimaginable challenges, she found herself being trafficked by the person she had trusted most, robbed of her agency and dreams. Yet, within the darkest corners of her ordeal, a glimmer of hope emerged when a friend told her about NTSA’s Alliance Referral System (ARS).
ARS, made possible entirely through generous people like you, acts as a beacon of hope for survivors like Kim*. This innovative program allowed Kim to fill out a single form on her phone in order to be matched with shelters across the nation that fit her needs. Soon, Kim heard that there were three different residential programs in the U.S. that matched her preferences and could take her in.
Not only was there hope, she got to choose her new life!
A week later, Kim walked through the doors of the program she had chosen – doors that would lead to so much more than just shelter. She was immediately connected with a team of experts—therapists, social workers, legal advocates, and more—who stood by her side every step of the way as she navigated the long, complex path to healing.
Today, we celebrate with immense joy as we share Kim‘s story with you.
