Selah Freedom


Selah Freedom exists to end sex trafficking and bring freedom to the exploited.

We are so grateful for each one of our amazing volunteers at Selah Freedom! With your help, we are able to see victims transformed into survivors. Selah Freedom’s volunteers are encouraged to plug in their diverse backgrounds and skill sets, enriching our various programs.

Meet
Jeanne, Zach, Kristin, Jen & Bryan
 
 
Remodeling the Wisconsin safe house from foundation to roof was a complete labor of love and we couldn't be more grateful. Their dedication will impact future generations of the survivors who will call it home and the ripple effect into the future that their changed lives will create.
 
Thank you, Jeanne Ames, Zach & Kristin Molgaard,
Jen Skanron and Bryan Yakel.

Volunteer Spotlight
 
Meet Whitney Gantt
 
“I have been volunteering with Selah Freedom since December of 2018, and it has been one of the best things I have spent my time doing! 
 
Being able to go into the residential home, cook alongside the women, celebrate birthdays and milestones, and being able to see healing and transformation take place before my eyes is such an honor and a blessing.
 
Volunteering with Selah Freedom has opened my eyes to so much more. Spending time with the group of amazing survivors and staff is something I’ll never forget. Even if you don’t think you have talents and gifts to offer...you do. You can always be a light in someone’s life by just doing life together in a positive way!”
 
Thank you, Whitney, for all you do!

Employment Partnership Connections
 
Selah Freedom works with survivors to empower and prepare them for success as they step forward into a new job/career path. 
 
At the onset of this journey, we carefully select and partner with businesses who can provide a safe environment, provide flexibility, and operate with core values comparable to those of Selah Freedom. A survivor is initially eligible to work 15-20 hours and then may gradually increase her hours. 
 
Presently, we are seeking employment partners in the technical area of machining or manufacturing and medical coding/billing.
 
If you have a relationship with a business located in the North Sarasota/Manatee area that you believe meets the above criteria, please reach out to Leslie@SelahFreedom.com. Our Employment Empowerment team will do the rest.
 
Thank you in advance for your assistance and collaboration!
