"I didn’t know about the issue before talking to Founder, Kim Biddle - I think originally I felt it was something that happened overseas, places in eastern EU or Asia, I didn’t think it was literally happening on our doorstep or around the us… I am not alone, a lot of people don't know about this issue but now more people do – and we have to all stop just listening, now is the time to take action and that is what SAVING INNOCENCE does – the team has gotten in with sleeves rolled - in the trenches doing the work."

"I do this work for the children. They are some of the most incredible, resilient, and brave young people, and I love that I get to be a part of their lives, and be a part of their healing process. If I could say one thing to them, I would thank them for their bravery, and encourage them to work towards healing so they can encourage and support others."
Kim Biddle /Founder & CEO
"Everything we overcome can be used to help others in their overcoming. Everything that has come against us to destroy us, can now be used to set others free.… by SURVIVING all that was intended to destroy us, we are given tools that can be used to set others free."
―Malala Yousafzai /Youngest Nobel Laureate
"I raise up my voice—not so I can shout, but so that those without a voice can be heard...we cannot succeed when half of us are held back."
We Are Saving Innocence
Within 90 minutes we respond along with Child Welfare and Probation. Clothes and food are provided, and the child is taken for a medical exam.
We teach life skills, connect the children to communities, celebrate their accomplishments, and secure placement at empowerment events.
Without us, children across the country would not receive the rehabilitation they need to survive, and predators would go unpunished.
We help the children find their voice again, we speak out for their injustice, and we fight for their survival and emergence back into healthy communities.
