It is estimated that 50,000 women and children are brought to the United States for trafficking every single year. Despite these numbers, human trafficking is an issue plagued by avoidance, minimization, and victim blaming. But since its inception, The Salvation Army's New Day Drop-in Center has never turned a blind eye to women in need.

Associate Minister, Morgan R. McLean presented a donation of $1,927 to The Center Foundation. The check, given on behalf of MLUC’s Offering Outreach program, will help the foundation continue to support Delaware County and Philadelphia area residents through mentoring.

The Center Foundation offers two mentoring programs - one supporting women in transition, and another for young parents. Program participants have access to emotional and financial support, as well as educational guidance and tutoring.

Jane D. Todd, Program Director at the Center Foundation stated, “We were excited to share our mission and mentoring work with the church. The congregation’s generous response will help support women and teen parents as they work on personal goals toward self-sufficiency. Both our Fair Chance Fund and life skills workshops will have the much-needed funding to continue to offer support for a better future to all of our participants.”

Bonnie Bristow, MLUC member who was present for the event, stressed the value and necessity of mentoring programs like The Center Foundation.
