Email: info@bridgetsdream.org

Descriptions: Bridget's Dream is a faith-based nonprofit organization built on Biblical principles and dedicated to providing practical services to victims, their families, and youth at-risk of exploitation. We believe in the sound integration of psychological and biblical principles. We recognize that we are in a war and our battle strategy must come from the King of kings. Although Sex Trafficking has, within the last few years, emerged as our Nation's "hot topic", we recognize that the pursuit, rescue, and restoration of prostituted persons is not a new concept. William Booth (founder of the Salvation Army) pioneered this cause in the 1800's. In General William Booth's war cry, known as the "New National Scheme for Deliverance of Unprotected Girls and the Rescue of the Fallen", he established general principles that guided the restoration work for individuals trapped in sexual exploitation. We believe that there is much to be learned from those that have gone before us. When the dust settles and excitement about this cause dissipates, when our arms grow weary and hearts overwhelmed, the dream will carry on because this is not just Bridget's dream or Leah's dream...it is God's Dream!!! As a partner of City of Refuge Sacramento, Bridget's Dream is committed to the ongoing development of collaborative partnerships with other organizations. We believe that a spirit of unity will enable our community to meet the multi-faceted needs of those we serve. There is greater strength in numbers and as we are witnessing a move of God that is revealing His passionate devotion to the destitute, we are seeing Him join together the hearts of those who are like-minded.

The students are 5th thru 12th graders. We are a non-profit organization and this year, for the first time, we did not receive a budget to work with, so mostly we have to rely on fundraisers. Our youth group is involved in service to the community in a variety of ways: we help the Lazarus Club with set-up for funerals, our dancers perform for schools and convalescent homes, we help with the Woodland Ecumenical Christmas Baskets; participate in ACS Relay for Life; the Christmas Parade; etc. Because I am the only adult working with the group, it is difficult to break into groups since an adult has to always be present. I am looking for interns to help in the following areas: music/drama/dance. We are interested in starting a contemporary worship band - I have the students, they have their instruments, but no director. Our dance group is a hip/hop, old school, salsa/merengue group. Would like someone who knows praise worship dance to provide assistance. Need creative, energetic, vibrant people to help. Preferably of the Catholic faith.
