Our Five Keys

Community Awareness
prevent, identify, restore

Seminars and and assemblies on the topics of human trafficking, sexual exploitation, and social media safety. The For Dignity team is recognized and respected for their expertise and invited regularly to speak at universities, high schools, and community events.

Empowering Women

Research indicates that women working in the sex industry are faced with higher rates of drug addictions, sexually transmitted diseases, violent assaults, and mental health problems. Studies also report that these women suffer from PTSD at the same rate as a returning war vet. * (cited from www.iamatreasure.com)
Through our community outreach, Emerge Ladies, we offer free resources and assistance to women working in the adult industry. We walk beside women, cheer them on and let them know they are not alone. We empower women by offering them choices. We believe in them and help cultivate their dreams so they can fulfill their destiny.

Addiction Crisis

There is no doubt that drug addiction is an epidemic in NJ and surrounding areas. Stories of overdose and death are flooding the media every day. The heroin overdose rate in NJ is 3X the national average.* (NJTVonline) In the past decade admission to drug addiction treatment centers has risen over 700%, yet there are thousands who have been turned away. Too many are dying and we need to intercede. Victims of sexual exploitation are at higher risk of addictions due to the nature of their trauma. Addiction is a community health and safety concern, and our ignorance is not an option. When one member of the community suffers, we all suffer. What can we do about this crisis? We have a network of strategic partners who will help those who want help.

What others are saying

“Kelly, Director of For Dignity, is the go-to person for combatting and making victims, citizens, politicians and opinion makers aware of the human trafficking epidemic happening in our communities today. Her wisdom, expertise, and knowledge about human trafficking are both special and remarkable. Kelly’s diligence and steadfast approach have helped many victims deal with human trafficking and shielding them from their offenders. I can’t say enough good things about the amazing work Kelly and the For Dignity Team are doing to make our world a safer place!”
David Spector

“…As educators, it is challenging to keep up with technology and trends that are ever changing. Kelly’s passion is speaking to the hearts of young people while instructing them in how they can protect themselves through proactive measures with social media. She is up to date with what is happening and how we, as a community, can do something to put an end to an epidemic that is taking our nation by storm…..”
