"Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows."
- Matthew 10:29-31.
The above passage from Scripture describes God's love for His children over all creatures on Earth. Even the smallest of birds do not fall on His watch. These verses serve as a reminder, especially for survivors, that we are ALL worthy of love and are valuable in His sight.
Our organization is commUNITY focused. Sparrows are small in size, but they draw their strength in numbers and are known to be very protective, hardworking, and creative creatures. By working together as a community, our voices become louder and stronger. It is about working with our neighbors, our local businesses, and other organizations who share our goals. It takes a community to bring about change.
Art is a powerful tool for communication - there are no language barriers. Art has the power to heal, tell stories, evoke emotions, and help create social change. Sparrow Freedom Project's Healing HeARTs Program allows artists, of all ages and from every background, an opportunity to help shed light on Human Trafficking, to give a voice to those who do not have one, and to bring hope to those who need it most.
Education is key in the fight against Human Trafficking. We offer a Human Trafficking 101 Training Course for all licensed professionals in the state of Michigan. If you are interested in booking a speaker for your community, school, church, or business event, please visit our How to Help page and scroll down to our Speaker Request Form.
We help provide aid and support to survivors of human trafficking. Assistance includes: food, clothing, emergency housing rental costs, transportation, and other basic needs. We cannot do what we do without the help of our generous donors. Help us continue our efforts to assist survivors in immediate need by making a donation today. Every dollar counts.
