$95,000 in Grants Awarded Locally

Langley for Families Foundation announces $95,000 in grants for its annual impact cause funding. FreeKind, Safe House Project, and Survivor Ventures will each receive $25,000. In 2021, the Foundation has adopted the fight against human trafficking as its focus for the year, creating awareness campaigns and providing virtual training for Langley employees.

“These organizations see the worst of humanity every day and continue the fight diligently,” said Foundation Director Laurel Ramey. “It’s our privilege to support their innovative work to help survivors find peace.”

Safe House Project will implement healthcare human trafficking identification and prevention training. The proposal is to design, build, and deploy a survivor-informed, trauma-informed, and patient-centered online training that equips all U.S. healthcare workers to identify potential human trafficking victims, give support, and offer resources.

Survivor Ventures has successfully piloted Survivors to Entrepreneurs (S2E), a program that innovatively addresses economic empowerment for trafficking survivors by offering typical trauma-informed victim services while also increasing employment and wealth-building opportunities for survivors by funding full-time jobs at small business partners.

FreeKind, formerly known as Virginia Beach Justice Initiative, will be adding a transitions coordinator to support its Offramps for Survivors program. FreeKind focuses on intervention efforts within the judicial system or intercepting victims who have been misidentified as criminals, and pre-planning their transition from incarceration to include shelter, transportation, and other support services.

Additionally, Samaritan House and Transitions Family Violence Services will both receive $10,000 grants.
