KENNEWICK, WA- Throughout the holiday season, we witness incredible people and organizations that want to give back to their community.

But, you also have an opportunity this season to give money back, towards someone else's salary. It isn't just anyone's salary, this person will be a local human trafficking advocate. The advocate will become a comfortable person victims can confide in when they want help and want a way out.

You have probably heard about the complexity of human trafficking, and finding those victims is even more difficult. In the Tri-Cities, studies have found anywhere from 200 to 300 kids are being exploited at any given time.

"Traffickers can take their victims throughout the northwest. There is a circuit, Seattle, Portland, through Yakima, here in the Tri-Cities and up to Spokane. Sometimes even Idaho. So, we can find these kids from another location too," said Amber Bruce, with Mirror Ministries.

Mirror Ministries partnered up with TCCAT to apply for a grant through Women Helping Women Tri-Cities. They are willing to fund up to half of the project. Right now, Mirror Ministries is about two thirds of the way to their goal through a crowd funding campaign you can find by clicking here.

The hiring process will begin shortly after, we hope to follow up on the process and introduce that advocate to you.
