From a Survivor
"One night I was at a house that was raided for forced prostitution. I was questioned by a Deputy and while I was being questioned something came over me. I blurted out "can you help me get treatment?" I could tell the deputy was both suprised and happy that I asked. He gave me a contact for RAASE, told me a little about them as well as law enforcement’s part in helping RAASE. I'll be completely honest I was nervous and almost half hoping they wouldn't call back. So I called and left a message and within about 24 hrs I received a call letting me know that Amber would be getting ahold of me. The first time Amber called I was really nervous. After we got to talking I began to feel very relaxed and comfortable. Her voice was very soothing and with her having a similar past she knew how I felt and it made me feel more comfortable talking to her. We talked several times that week and decided to meet for lunch. I figured we might as well, feeling like we had known each other forever. Since then we have become good friends. The people of RAASE have helped me get into a great program which not only deals with substance abuse but human trafficking/sexual exploitation as well. This, for me, is a major plus! I believe that Amber and RAASE are guardian angels sent from God. Without RAASE and the help and support of my family and Amber I would either be in jail, prison, or worse… dead. I would like to thank the task force that was there that night, RAASE, RFW and my family for everything they have done and continue to do."
