Everyone has heard stories and read news articles about Human Trafﬁcking that occurs around the world. It is unbelievable to most of us how such a thing can happen, but according to Homeland Security Investigations, there are millions of men, women and children worldwide who are victims of Human Trafﬁcking. But the most important thing to remember is that IT CAN HAPPEN TO YOUR CHILD!
All of Elite Foundation's resources are dedicated to empowerment of survivors of human trafficking (HT) worldwide. Our mission is to eradicate the potentially devastating impact of surviving sexual trauma and exploitation one soul at a time. Elite achieves this by tangibly meeting a victim's need for safety, mental behavioral health stability, education and vocational reintegration.
FUNDING FREEDOM to Elite Foundation means helping exploited women, children, and other victims of human trafficking become free. Free from their past, free from their struggles, free from their horrible memories and experiences. We focus on reintroducing normal lives to the many nameless, faceless victims of human trafficking in it’s many ugly forms.

My habitual monitoring of human-trafficking news revealed a story every week or so just a few years ago. Now every day my inbox is loaded with at least three news stories about human-trafficking victims and the vile criminals who prey upon them.
Recently, I learned a Naples girl was sold for sex on the internet by a human trafficker. Don’t be shocked – it’s true! Websites like Backpage.com have a loophole that makes it legal for their advertisers to post ads selling underage girls for sex on the internet.
That’s why I’m shaking my head that Congress, after months of investigation, deliberation, committee hearings and outrage, has failed to amend Section 230 of the 1996 Communications Decency Act.
A simple and widely supported amendment to Section 230 will close the loophole that creates a Wild West playing field for human traffickers to make billions off internet transactions that exploit our most vulnerable citizens – especially children.
