“Human Trafficking in Our Communities”

Monday, March 18
7:00 PM
Room 101 (in person & via Zoom)

Speaker: Teri Jansen, Co-Founder/ Executive Director of Programs, The Key2Free, Georgetown

The Key2Free (thekey2free.org) is a nonprofit ministry in Georgetown. It serves adult women who have been victims of sexual exploitation and sex trafficking.

Co-founder Teri is a mother of three. She has more than 20 years of classroom teaching experience and a heart for equipping and empowering youth—as well as educating the public on prevention efforts of human trafficking in their communities.

When Teri is not presenting programs for the public, she focuses on her role as Executive Director of Programs. She works alongside participants in Key2Free programs to develop the organization’s education and restoration programs for survivors.

The Key2Free strives to prevent and battle sex trafficking through education, awareness programs in local communities, and comprehensive residential and aftercare for survivors of trafficking and exploitation. It offers services such as life skills classes, case management, therapy and other aftercare needs.

In 2021, The Key2Free was chosen for a mentorship through The Samaritan Woman Institute for Shelter Care and learned new strategies in caring for and housing survivors of sexual exploitation and trafficking. It is now offering 24/7 monitored shelter care as well as graduate housing.

The Kay2Free is a general partner of the National Trafficking Sheltered Alliance, giving it access to countless resources that enhance the quality of care for participants in the program.
