2019 Dine around town winners

Jenelle Lefief
President of Phoemale

SIGP and partners St. Lucy's Church and the Lakeshore Family YMCA held our 2nd annual 5k walk/run event last year on September 21, 2019  to help bring awareness to our communities about this horrific issue we have going on in our own back yards--HUMAN TRAFFICKING.  Our event raised enough money enabling us to donate funds raised to two different non-for-profit organizations.   These organization are helping Human Trafficking survivors overcome the violence that was in their lives and still may be in their lives today.
These organizations and recipients are:

Elli's House:  
Elli's House is a 501(c)3 nonprofit serving homeless & runaway women involved in human trafficking in the city of Detroit. Their mission is to abolish sex trafficking in the city of Detroit through building relationships, offering safe shelter, and providing education.

Phoemale: (pronounced female)
Phoemale is a non-profit organization created by and for women. They help those who have overcome domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking and/or homelessness rebuild their lives, and like the Phoenix, rise from the ashes.

Deb Ellinger
Executive Director and

founder of Elli's House
