About the Founder
For nearly 20 years, prior to returning to Texas 5 years ago, Donna has lived in Phoenix, AZ. She has experienced first hand working with victims of sex trafficking, both minor and adult victims, in coordination with the Phoenix Vice Unit and FBI. Since her arrival to Texas, she has worked in coordination with the Department of Homeland Security in Dallas, Smith County Sheriff Department, Tyler Police Department, and surrounding Law Enforcement Officers from Dallas High Risk Victims Unit, Longview PD, FBI Shreveport.
The PREP Home, a home for adult victims of Sex Trafficking was opened in Tyler from 2013-2017. Young ladies received full care plus their High School diplomas and many entered college during their residency at The PREP Home. The outreach arm of the The PREP Home,called Rescue and Restore,will always answer the call to assist a victim in need. However, R & R is now focusing on the middle school program called 'The Set Up'. Donna helps with curriculum development and leadership to achieve the goal of brining Awareness and Prevention to our young teens and adults.
She was one of the original board members who founded the organization called 'Streetlight' (www.StreetlightUSA.org ) which is a 48 bed safe house facility for minor victims of sex trafficking and sexual exploitation in Glendale, AZ. She also has provided care for hundreds of young single mothers and assisted with victims of domestic violence and abuse while living in the Phoenix Valley. She was the Arizona State Council Coordinator for the Teenage Mothers of Preschoolers program, winning a National Award.
Donna was called to the mission field as a young adult.
It was there that she first witnessed sexual exploitation while living in S Korea.
Donna has served as a missionary in Japan, Korea and Chile. She has also done short term work in Taipei, Swaziland (near South Africa). Her travels have also taken her to Central America, Argentina, Paraguay, Mexico and Canada.
Additional to her work in the field of Sex Trafficking, Donna was in Real Estate and Lending for nearly 15 years, as well as Business Development and Sales.
