Arrow’s Freedom Place and Theta Charity Antiques Show Combat Underage Sex Trafficking

March 24, 2016

TCAS-Check-PresentationArrow’s Freedom Place, a residential facility in the Houston area for underage female victims of sex trafficking, is pleased to have been the recipient of a donation from the Theta Charity Antiques Show (TCAS).

Each year, TCAS honors selected nonprofits as beneficiaries with funds collected solely through Show underwriting, admission tickets and catalogue advertising sales. In 2015, Freedom Place was honored to be among a handful chosen by this long-standing philanthropic endeavor.

One of only seven facilities of its kind in the U.S., Freedom Place’s mission is to offer a successful path to freedom for girls who have suffered as victims of sexual exploitation.

To help further this Houston tradition and continue to support worthy nonprofits such as Freedom Place, please make plans to attend this year’s Show at the Bayou City Events Center, November 11-13.

Freedom Place is a program of Arrow Child & Family Ministries. Through foster care and adoption, Arrow impacts over 4,000 children, teens and families each year. Since 1992, Arrow has been fighting the effects of child abuse by helping kids heal from the past and strengthening families to break the cycle of abuse and neglect.

Founded in 1952 as a cause driven effort, the Theta Charity Antiques Show has distributed over seven million dollars to Houston’s charitable organizations that support educational endeavors, medical research, community assistance and cultural arts.
