Community church makes a generous donation to combat sex trafficking
RICHLAND, Wash. - A community church is showing support to help combat sex trafficking in our community with a generous donation.
Columbia Community Church raised $80,000 in hopes of opening a safe house for sex trafficking victims in the Tri-Cities.
The check was presented to Mirror Ministries a non-profit organization in town that works with sex trafficking victims.
They run a 24/7 hotline where a trained advocate will answer the phone and help the individual having problems.
Tricia MacFarlen, executive director of the Mirror Ministries said this check will help create a safe place for young girls.
"Everything is designed towards that healing from the extreme complex trauma they have been through with this trafficking,” MacFarlen said.
Columbia Community Church is the first major donor towards the new restoration home for minor girls who have been victimized by sex trafficking.
