“It got to a point where I couldn’t anymore…my life was in danger. The situation my sons were living was also very serious. My ex-partner could have finished what he had started. Having to hide me and my children…VIDA was incredible. It was salvation. Survivor means that I could have died…and…thank God that didn’t happen.”

“You have made VIDA into an exemplar of assistance for immigrants victimized by violent crimes, including human trafficking, and I am grateful for the opportunity to showcase it to the heroes as a best practice for combatting modern day slavery. My staff shared that the visit was both very informative and memorable, and that you did an excellent job fielding countless questions!”

-Luis CdeBaca, Ambassador-At-Large (Ret.) Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons, U.S. State Dept.
