When you visit Gracehaven's website, this is the front page news. I live in Ohio, and the seminar that I attended that triggered the creation of the Comic Creators Alliance focused largely on what is happening here in Ohio. Sadly Toledo is one of the largest hubs for Human Trafficking in the U.S. Members of Gracehaven house spoke at that conference, and I was moved by what they are trying to do. Gracehaven is a house that is trying to open, to offer shelter to victims who want to get out of the horrible situation they find themselves in.
Currently, there are only 49 beds available to victims in the entire country. So let's help Gracehaven open!
Over the last year Gracehaven has made many of the necessary renovations they needed to make to get the house up to code so that it can open. I am told this is what the money we raised last year was used for. In addition, they raised awareness and education in several key areas, and were advocates of the first Ohio law against human trafficking!
