“We serve people during some of their most vulnerable moments. In the case of human trafficking, the ripple effects can present as troubled youth, mental illness, addiction, suicide ideation, and a lack of basic needs in which to live independently,” said Sandy Whitaker, LifeView Group Vice President of Corporate Development. “Our mission is to help people throughout life’s journey by treating trauma and mental health issues, providing job training for people with disabilities, and protecting children who come through the child welfare system. This educational event was designed to engage the whole community in this important cause.”
