Humboldt Merchant Services is funding Operation Underground Railroad (OUR) and Vista Maria. These two world-class organizations are dedicated to the eradication of human trafficking and sex slavery.
These organizations, Operation Underground Railroad (OUR) and Vista Maria, help to rescue women and children in dire situations around the world, and provide at-risk girls with the services they need to make better choices:
Operation Underground Railroad – Working with local police and foreign governments, OUR’s “Jump Teams” (rescue teams) travel around the world to liberate kidnapped children who are often trafficked as sex and labor slaves. To date, OUR, which is based in Anaheim, Calif., has rescued over 265 children and made over 50 arrests of traffickers. The non-profit organization recently merged with the Elizabeth Smart Foundation, which is helping to expand OUR’s reach, and both organization’s prevention and rehabilitation efforts.
Vista Maria – Based in Dearborn Heights, Mich., Vista Maria was founded 130 years ago by the Sisters of the Good Shepherd as an orphanage. Today Vista Maria helps women and girls regain their self-worth and dignity, and become self-sufficient through a variety of on-campus and community-based programs. Its showcase annual event, the Dolly Drive, collects new dolls or stuffed animals for young women and children in Vista Maria’s programs, including those who were rescued from the bondage of human trafficking.
