“Jillian has changed my life! The first time she shared her story with me and how she was victimized, I felt numb for a few days. A little in shock. How does something like that happen to a girl like this?” Strong, bold, educated, fearless. It happens. It is happening right now in our city!
God put Jillian on this earth to teach, to educate children on human and sex trafficking, so they do not become victimized. I want to help her do that.”
