"She Has A Name" is derived from a real-life story from the streets. There was a "john" (male paying for sex), a pimp, and a prostitute. The "john" said to the pimp, "What's her name?" The pimp said, "She doesn't have a name. She is whatever you want her to be."
Upon hearing this story, the organization was born. She Has A Name began in 2011 as a community of Christ followers burdened for victims of human trafficking. Members of Veritas Community Church created the ministry to help fund Christ-centered anti-human trafficking efforts by selling t-shirts. Over the next few years, She Has A Name became a vessel for money and awareness to flow to the abolitionist community; strengthening it and funding vital services.
As we developed relationships with and worked alongside our partners, the most pressing needs were made clear and our work is now focused on restoring and empowering survivors.
Our mission is to see survivors restored into society, welcomed in the workplace and thriving in their community.
