Supporting Those Rescued from Human Trafficking
Hands2Feet focuses on providing support and resources to women who have been rescued from human trafficking. During the holiday season, we strive to bring joy and hope to these women as they rebuild their lives and work towards a brighter future.
Our goal is to empower these survivors and help them get back on their feet. We offer annual giving campaigns throughout the year to help these women as they transition to a safer and more stable life.
Giving all year round
During the holiday seasons, we work to bring joy and hope to these women by organizing special events and activities to help them celebrate and feel supported.

The Human Trafficking Problem
A common misconception is that girls who are trafficked somehow choose this lifestyle. This could not be further from the truth. Sex traffickers use violence, threats, lies and other forms of coercion to compel them to engage in commercial sex acts against their will. Many victims become romantically involved with someone who then forces or manipulates them into prostitution.
Others are lured in with false promises of a job, such as modeling or dancing. For some, terrible things occur at home, and parents or other family members force them to sell sex. Some girls remain captive for days. Others remain captive for years. Then, the cycle begins – abuse, manipulation and force. It is a living nightmare – childhoods stolen, fear instilled, hope lost.
For some girls in Orange County, hope comes in the form of an angel, a person who sees into their soul and embraces their humanity. When they are rescued, this angel stays by their side. A bit of hope is restored. But there is still much healing to be done. For many, it is monumental. How to rebuild a life stolen at 11 years old?
This is where Hands2Feet comes in. We aim to bring a bit of hope back to their lives in the most practical ways. A new bed. A nice jacket for a job interview. A home cooked meal at the holidays. Christmas gifts for their children. Every little bit helps.
