Hope Amidst the Darkness

Ed Smith speaks about the joys of family and affirms our vision and mission as we address sexual exploitation in Canada. He shares candidly of his families personal tragic story of loosing their daughter Cheri to the streets of prostitution and how control and manipulation of varying degrees are present in all forms of trafficking. Victims of sex trafficking are often blinded to the signs of being sexually exploited and trafficked. Pimps prey on their vulnerabilities.

We are so honored to have Ed and Linda Smith as two of our founding members as we launched HRC membership in 2017. They've been a part of our beginning stages in forming our vision and mission and are prime examples of how we can hold on to hope amidst the darkness. 

Our Vision: "Creating a world where humanity is renewed and restored in healthy relationship."

Our Mission: "Eradicating sexual exploitation through our H.O.P.E. model (Holistic Restoration, Outreach, Partnership and Education)
