Butterfly Effect

Fill practical need, create relationship, and open doors to a new future for those caught in trafficking, addiction, and homelessness in the greater Las Vegas area.

Human trafficking is happening all over the world. Here in Vegas in rears its ugly head as a socially acceptable part of our city. Girls are masqueraded around in showgirl outfits, sold behind the scenes through stripping or ‘escort services,’or simply sold on street corners. Most of these girls are not in this line of work because they want to be. Often they are abused or trafficked as teenagers and it quickly becomes all they know. Many people believe that prostitution is legal here in Las Vegas so they turn their head at the sight of a girl being sold on the street. The reality is that prostitution is illegal in this city and human trafficking is occurring hidden under an ‘accepted social norm.’

YWAM Las Vegas has been actively involved in anti-trafficking efforts in collaboration with partners across the city for several years. One merely needs to step outside the doors of our facility into the alley to witness trafficking take place. Our efforts at YWAM Las Vegas have included raising awareness of the issue, training college-aged youths how to combat trafficking, sharing the love of God and providing resources directly to victims.
