What we do

Free 2 Hope, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization located in Louisville, Kentucky that is taking a new approach to help stop human trafficking. We believe that a victim-centered approach is absolutely crucial for persons who have been victims of human trafficking.    

Free 2 Hope, Inc. uses a unique 4 E-model that we believe will systematically disrupt human trafficking and makes our communities safer for all:

  1. Educate - the general public about human trafficking and its prevalence in their specific communities. We also offer more extensive educational programs and training.
  2. Equip - local businesses and the communities to address and prevent human trafficking.
  3. Expose - the business of human trafficking through targeted outreach campaigns.
  4. Enable- a safe space for young women who are at risk of trafficking or who have traded sex to survive to find rest, resources and build community.

Amy Leenerts – Founder/Director Free2Hope Inc.

Telling about your victimization is not easy, but some freedom can come in the process. Understand that victims of violent crimes are not mandated to give you their whole story at your will. Sometimes it will take a lifetime to tell it all....if and when we choose to. I have encountered many who think we owe them information of what happened to us, and this is wrong. Don't see us as broken, see us as true SURVIVORS because that's truly who we are.
Thank you Kirt Jacobs of MoxieTalk
