WELCOME

Freedom13, a nonprofit 501C3, functions to keep children safe online and out of minor sex trafficking through education and awareness. Directors Gene and Sandy Hill provide free presentations to adults and youth to arm them with the information needed for safety and protection. All members of our organization are volunteers, and no one is a paid employee. All donations go to end minor sex trafficking.

Stay current on the issues by signing up for our newsletter (see right).
