Underage victims of sex trafficking What does Genesis Project offer them?
The Genesis Project currently operates a drop in center where victims can receive food, clothes, shelter, and resources to escape the sex trade and sustain a life outside of it. Where does the money go?
The funding will go toward maintaining Genesis Project’s drop in center, expanding services, and eventually opening a long term housing facility. When?
Volunteer or donate to Genesis Project anytime by visiting www.gpseattle.net/action. Join the Freedom Walk on July 20th, 2013. Why do you need my support?
