Zoe is excited to join in with Hoops for Help! In partnership with The 76ers Fieldhouse in Wilmington we are hosting our Hoops For Help 3 on 3 basketball tournament for healing in Delaware. Over 30 different teams will represent recovery advocates, organizations, treatment providers, and Chuches. Over 30 different organization vendor tables will surround the courts on tournament day.

They will explain their program, investment in Delaware’s recovery community, and commitment to unity moving forward. This is a double elimination tournament with games to 11 points and all participants 14 and up. The action on the courts will be focused more on fun and fellowship than stiff competition.

Everyone attending in person is required to fill out a waiver and standardized screening assessment online before entry into the facility.

Playground: The Child Sex Trade In America Screen and Panel

01/24/2017

Tuesday, January 24, 2017 at 9 AM – 11:30 AM

Human trafficking is a crime which involves the forcing or coercing of a person into performing a commercial sex act or forced labor. Although human trafficking is a heinous crime no matter who the victim is, it is especially disturbing when it involves children or young adults.

In honor of Human Trafficking Awareness Month, the Region III Anti-Human Trafficking Taskforce is partnering with the City of Philadelphia to sponsor a viewing of the documentary film Playground. This movie, by filmmaker Libby Spears, and produced by George Clooney, Stephen Soderbergh, and Grant Heslov, offers a glimpse into the reality of sexual slavery in the United States. The film takes you through the stories of young girls who could very well be your neighbor, you friend, your daughter or your sister.

The viewing will be followed by a panel discussion featuring social service providers and Federal Government staff directly engaged in work to stop the epidemic of trafficking individuals across the country.

This educational event is open to all interested parties including healthcare and social services professionals, faith-based organizations, academia and students.

Registration begins at 8:30 a.m.

The film screening, followed by panel dialogue, will be 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Yolanda Schlabach, co-chair of the Victim Services Committee of Delaware's Human Trafficking Council, will share the realities of sex trafficking of our children (and adults) in this state. Powerfully illustrated through an A-V presentation, is the gripping reality of what occurs within our own communities.

As a volunteer, Yolanda has traveled the state over the past few years, bringing awareness to medical professionals, state agencies, law enforcement, legislators, judiciary, social workers, therapists and educators. She is Founder and Executive Director of Zoe Ministries, Inc., a nonprofit dedicated to aftercare for minor female victims of sex trafficking.

Join us to learn how to get involved and identify the next steps we can take together as the body of Christ, unleashing the only power that can defeat this pure evil attacking our state. We need you to be informed!
