The House of Promise/MSU LEAD Campaign


Join The House of Promise/MSU LEAD Campaign to help with the fight against human trafficking in the MSU and Greater Lansing Area.

The House of Promise/MSU LEAD Campaign was born out of passion from three student employees of the MSU Women’s Resource Center as part of the annual “Student-led Series” to fight against human trafficking.  These individuals teamed up with Ms. Shari Montgomery, President and Founder of The House of Promise to both educate and raise awareness about human trafficking in its many forms, and thus, The House of Promise/MSU LEAD Campaign was developed.  The goal of the campaign is designed as a challenge to the MSU and Greater Lansing area to educate and raise funds to purchase The House of Promise residential safe place for young women and girls who have been trafficked. 

 

The Goal:

To educate and create a movement in the MSU and Greater Lansing area to fight against human trafficking.  To raise funding to purchase a residential House of Promise safe place.  To raise funding to sustain The House of Promise and the residents who seek shelter and healing there.

FIGHT HUMAN TRAFFICKING.

WHO WILL?  SPARTANS WILL.
