Poiema Foundation - Education and Public Awareness of Human Trafficking

Outreach Update - September 2023

I hope you are enjoying this lovely fall weather; I know I am!

September was a remarkable month for outreach. We currently have 15 campuses in Texas and one in South Carolina that are working diligently to hand out missing kids’ posters. Last month these 16 campuses handed out posters to nearly 500 locations! This is a wonderful opportunity to engage and equip our communities in the fight to find these children.

As a result of our faithful volunteers, SIX of the twelve missing children on our posters were safely recovered last month!

Along with the recoveries of these children, there were multiple sightings reported by our volunteers.

  • A Frisco volunteer shared that a motel clerk reported seeing E. Whisken, E. Sims, H. Bennett, and J. White in motels within the last few weeks. We quickly passed these reports on to the 4TheOne’s Private Investigators!
  • A QT Clerk reported seeing A. Williams every morning on the weekends and had just seen her the morning our volunteer spoke with her!

We are thankful for our eyes and ears in the community!

We also received some devastating news. It is with a heavy heart we let you know that you A. Reyna has passed away. We do not have a lot of details, but please keep her family in your prayers during this difficult time.

Thank you for your continued hard work and prayers.
