FAST Forward

Fighting Against Sex Trafficking


According to the FBI this number is the percentage of all juvenile prostitution arrests that involve black children.

“As a global community, we all have a role to play. We must stand shoulder to shoulder and continue our efforts to eradicate the practice of human trafficking in all its forms.”

If you could support a girl who was exiting sex would you be willing to help?

Our founder was a teenage runaway in the early ’90s. She is a survivor of sex trafficking and knows what it is to be RESCUED yet battling through feelings of worthlessness and self-doubt. After years of overcoming the challenges she faced. She organized others to assist the vision.

Her tireless efforts are finally beginning to take shape in the form of the initiative FAST FORWARD.

Our mission is clear, we want to be able to MAKE A TANGIBLE DIFFERENCE in the life of survivors in our community. The feelings of shame associated with coming out of this tumultuous lifestyle leave the survivor feeling insecure, vulnerable, and with the extra load of low self-esteem. Our goal is to PROVIDE beauty boxes filled with self-care items designed to make them feel good about themselves. This is made possible by your GENEROUS SUPPORT. With this in mind, we want to supply these boxes to 100 survivors by year’s end.

It FEELS GOOD to offer hope to someone else!

Keeya’s message of pain and promise, despair and deliverance, vile and victory is one that God can use to remind us all that, no matter our circumstances, we are valued as we are and able to journey to a new place of self-worth.
