Until Every Child Is Free From Trafficking

Continuing a Legacy of Love

For many, February is a time to express love to others. However, for survivors of child trafficking it isn’t so simple. So often, love has been twisted, betrayed, or confused for the benefit of those who would exploit them. At Araminta, we work daily to redefine and demonstrate true love by walking with survivors on the road to restoration and healing.

As we celebrate the month of love, we celebrate the opportunity to demonstrate this through all of you. One survivor recently told us, “It really means a lot to me how people are so willing to give. Especially since a lot of my life I’ve only known people to take.” Your support literally translates into transforming lives, and the truth is, none of this would be possible without the consistent and generous support of people like you.

Our beloved Founder and Executive Director, Alicia McDowell, knew that it would take the entire community surrounding survivors with loving relationships to see the day when trafficking no longer exists in Maryland, and she worked tirelessly to make that a reality. We said farewell to Alicia recently as she began a new chapter in her life, but her legacy of love continues. We invite you to join us in honoring Alicia’s legacy through a one-time or monthly sustaining gift today.


We look to the future of Araminta with great anticipation as we serve more survivors and at-risk youth with increased services and specialized care. May we count on you to help us show love year-round?

Stronger together,

Carrie Freshour
Interim Executive Director
