Each LNF program was developed with one person in mind.
Our approach holistically addresses a survivor's needs on their journey to safety and wholeness.
Love Never Fails, 3Strands Global, and Frederick Douglass Family Initiatives have joined together in the fight against human trafficking to launch a statewide prevention education initiative called PROTECT.
The joint mission is to reduce the vulnerability of children by identifying and preventing human trafficking using a standardized trauma informed education curriculum and systematic delivery methodology. To learn more about this initiative go to protectnow.org.
- Love Never Fails and PROTECT supported the passing of AB 1227: Human Trafficking Prevention Education and Training Act. The bill was sponsored by PROTECT partner, 3Strands Global. Read their press release here.
- CSEC Education Resources:
- Access to safe housing is crucial for a survivor's journey to wholeness and restoration. The current housing crisis has left many homeless and vulnerable.
- To address the dire need, Love Never Fails launched the I AM House of Restoration in March 2015. The I AM House is an 18-month, trauma informed program that provides safe housing and services to an average of 26 women survivors and their children a year.
- Mentors 4 Positive Change was developed to support survivors and at-risk youth in their life’s journey. Our goal is for mentees to gain a sense of belonging and acceptance by inviting them to participate in a 1-on-1 relationship which provides access to safe and enriching activities that empower them to make positive life choices.

SEARCH AND RESCUE:
- Project Look 4 Me volunteer staff is comprised of private investigators, off duty law enforcement and military personnel and justice oriented community members. Together we focus on organizing searches and assist in creating and distributing missing person flyers.

Love Never Fails also participates in multiple human trafficking task forces and coalitions to work together with our partners to address this issue.
- We are committed to providing members of the under-served and under-represented community including human trafficking survivors, foster, system involved and/or transitional aged youth, teenage parents, etc. an opportunity to compete for professional careers in sustainable industries.
