LA County's Newest Safe House
ZOE International is now nearing completion of a small comprehensive residential facility in northern LA County for children rescued from Human Traffickers. ZOE is a Christian anti-human trafficking organization with the mission to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ and demonstrate God's compassion through rescuing and caring for orphans and children from human trafficking. ZOE began its work in Thailand in 2002. Our Social Justice Team has made donations toward their local effort. If you’d like to find out more about ZOE, here is the link: https://gozoe.org/
