OUTCAST TO WITNESS
Outcast to Witness (OTW) provides weekly small group Bible studies, one-on-one discipleship, and large group gatherings for 350 individuals who are in detox programs, sober living homes, reentry/transitional living, human trafficking safe houses, jails, and juvenile detention centers. We use restorative justice approaches along with biblical teaching to address isolation, root causes of addiction/crime, and trauma.
Steps to Success
Steps to Success is a 10-week job readiness/ life skills course that teaches and equips individuals with basic life skills, responsibility/ commitment, professional interpersonal skills, financial literacy, interview training, and resume building. We partner with various local organizations in hosting workshops and inviting guest speakers in various industries to educate and inspire our program participants to go on living flourishing lives. Additionally, Steps to Success also provides employment opportunities through our robust community network.
More than Conquerors
More than Conquerors is our anti-human trafficking initiaitve. Currently, we partner with cornerstone organizations in the community (Finding Freedom, Gems Uncovered, Forgotten Children, and Treasures) to conduct and lead outreaches in motels throughout Orange County and redlight districts in Los Angeles. We also offer local churches, volunteers, community and social service leaders with training to equip them with trauma knowledge and practical tools on how to engage with victims in their own communities. Most recently, NorthEast has been invited to be a part of The South Los Angeles Anti-Trafficking Committee(SLAATC) to prepare outreach and rescue efforts during The Super Bowl, providing emergency support and direct services for adults and minors rescued during the STING operation.
