Hands of Justice
When first established in August of 2017, Hands of Justice was geared toward teens. Our first teen meeting was comprised of eight local Montgomery County, Texas teens. That group grew to over 40 in just two months. Once a month teens came together and learned from Founder and Overcomer, Rebecca Cary, about human trafficking. From there this teen group created social media campaigns, poster campaigns and personally educated 100's of their peers and their families. They helped co-write and film an educational film, entitled "The Movement" which aired in the spring of 2017.
In the summer of 2019, Rebecca Cary shared her own personal story of how she was an Overcomer of Domestic Sex Trafficking publicly for the first time. With an amazing Board of Directors and Advisory Council, Rebecca was able to look at her own lived experience and understand services that could help another survivor in need. Hence the dream of an Economic Empowerment and Resource Center began. Over the next few months, Rebecca Cary, decided to expand Hands of Justice by adding on direct services and helping other Survivors thrive through economic empowerment and resources, long term support and educational services
In the Fall of 2021, at our annual Artreach for Freedom Gala, Rebecca announced the dream of a safe and welcoming place for Overcomers to come together in order to do life together. In less than 5 months, Hands
had found a place suited to their needs and begin working on creating services specific to the needs of Survivors who were not suited for residential facilities but were still in need of ongoing supportive services.
In July of 2022, just ten months after announcing this dream, Hands of Justice opened their doors to the public.
The new Economic Empowerment and Resource Center now provides both male and female Overcomers of Human Trafficking by provided a variety of longer term programs. To see what type of services that are available, click here:
In May of 2022, Hands of Justice also partnered with 20 Overcomers from across the nation in order to write and publish our first book, "When Silence Ends".
