The Family Partnership

Minneapolis Rotary has joined with The Family Partnership to combat sex trafficking in Minnesota. Through a three-year financial commitment from our club, The Family Partnership will fully fund an additional full-time staff member for its nationally recognized PRIDE (Promoting Recovery, Independence, Dignity, and Equality) program and potentially double the number of clients served. This full-time position will help victims reclaim their lives by coaching them on ways to reach their educational and employment goals, allowing them to permanently escape sex trafficking.

78% of PRIDE program participants over the past five years have discontinued sex trafficking after exiting the program.
Rotarians volunteer at the therapeutic child care center in North Minneapolis which serves young children of PRIDE participants.
