The Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word adopted a corporate stance against human trafficking in 2015. As a result, we have a special grant opportunity to respond to this issue. In 2017, the foundation sought out an educational partner to create a curriculum that educated social service practitioners about human trafficking. This curriculum, developed by social work faculty at Fontbonne University includes awareness & prevention models, clinical skills for counseling, and offers continuing education units (CEU) for those needing to renew practitioner licenses.
“We affirm the dignity and rights of all people and denounce human trafficking and the economic and social systems that promote it.”
