Poiema Foundation - Education and Public Awareness of Human Trafficking

Outreach Update - July 2023

Pictured above: Poiema’s Carrollton Outreach campus, made possible through our partnership with Bent Tree Bible Fellowship.

Just last month, SEVEN of the kids from our posters were recovered! YOU help make this possible by inviting your communities to call into the tipline if they spot any of these missing children. Keep reading below for more updates from July!

  • Poiema had 13 campuses cover 25 different routes last month. This means over 400 locations received missing kids posters! 
  • In July, we had a total of 16 kids on our outreach posters. Seven of these children have since been safely located!
  • The leader of our Dallas Bible Church campus said that employees at two different locations on their routes shared sightings of Hannah Bennett. She has since been found!! Praise God for her recovery.
  • A clerk at a Garland motel shared seeing Kassie Gowans a few weeks ago. Lastly, a store clerk at Goodwill in Garland shared seeing Aanieyah Burleson in their store the week prior to outreach. Both of these young ladies are still missing at this time, so please pray we get more leads on their whereabouts.
Our hearts are very grateful for each of our volunteers that help make our Community Awareness Outreach possible every month!

If you weren’t able to make it out last month, there are plenty of upcoming opportunities to attend Outreach! You can click the button below to view the calendar on VolunteerHub:
