    Human Trafficking in Contra Costa County

    The Love Never Fails organization formed in December 2011 after the Founder's teenage dance student experienced human trafficking in the SF Bay Area. Their Board of Directors and Advisory Board include thriving survivors and their families, business owners, teachers, social workers, Pastors, local government executives, attorneys, health care workers, etc. All of our non-profit Board and Advisory members are engaged on a voluntary basis. We are committed to the well being of all youth and driven to restoration, education and protect them from sex trafficking.

    Vanessa Russell has developed children in the area of dance, teaching hundreds, ages 3-25, lyrical, flags, hip hop, mime, since 2000. In 2010 one of her 15 year old dance students was sold into human trafficking. Although she was eventually located and is now being restored, Vanessa encountered many others who, like her student, were US born women, men and children trapped in modern day slavery.
