With a total of $22,953 raised so far and a goal of $72,000 – March 23rd, marked Passion Vancouver at Rogers Arena where youth aged 18 – 25 and their leaders were encouraged to attend and give support to ending human slavery.

The goal of $72,000 would provide 40 survivors of human trafficking with the essentials to build a new life at The Salvation Army’s Deborah’s Gate facility.  Once these young women have reached a place of healing and restoration through the love, care, and holistic programs offered at Deborah’s Gate, the team will provide each woman with the basic essentials to create a home, assist them in finding work, provide scholarships to University and ultimately, help them launch a new beginning.

Featured at the event were Louie Giglio, Chris Tomlin, Crowder and Kristian Stanfill.

Vancouver has been fortunate enough to host this event three times – one of the only cities who have been provided the honour to host on multiple occasions.

This truly marked a special night … one to demonstrate hope and inspiration for change + there is still time to give.

Thank you to Passion Vancouver who chose to highlight this project and all those who continue to give hope.
