While our stores are closed, we are ramping up our online presence. Crisis is our passion and our mission. We will continue to be a circle of protection not only for the vulnerable but also for YOU, since we are all vulnerable right now. While we have shut down many functions to honor the Governor's Executive Order, we continue to carry on the most essential functions to our mission. Our finance department continues to work, mostly through remote access. Our 911 line and our phone calls are also being answered remotely during regular business hours. Since the Michigan state governor identified security and communications staff as essential personnel, these efforts continue. While we are taking precautions, we are not afraid. We will continue to serve our wounded with the same passion as before. You can call on us—we will be here for you.
Venturing into red-light districts, teams on outreach build relationships with the women they meet and offer options to those seeking a way out. Your gift helps fund the efforts of outreach teams in the U.S. and around the world as they speak into the lives of those at risk.
