SA (Servants Anonymous) Foundation
Trafficking for sexual exploitation is the fastest growing business of organized crime in the world. A history of abuse and neglect are common factors of those who are exploited. Women and children are often sold into exploitation by people they know and trust. No country is immune to the issue of human trafficking for the purpose of sexual exploitation including right here in our city and country.
The SA Foundation believes that no person should be enslaved by, or trapped in the sex trade and exists to provide an avenue of escape for these women and their children worldwide. They are a faith based organization that provides long term housing, specialized recovery and skill development programs to help rewrite each individual’s story, from slavery to freedom.
The SA founder started its pilot program in 1989 in Calgary and proceeded to develop the SA Foundation in 1995. It is an Alberta registered organization and as such, Calgary is a great location for the Calgary Ice Breaker Polar Dip.
