BFA Presentations & Events

Since 2005, BFA has been training organizations nationwide how to effectively reach & restore victims of sexual exploitation. When Julie Shematz, MA, RMHCI, began doing strip club outREACHes in 2002, there were less than 5 ministries nationwide doing "strip club outREACH".  As of March 2017, there are more than 300 worldwide. 
Program Goal:  To equip others to prevent, advocate for, reach and restore victims.  

Program Objectives:    
    •  Educate and raise awareness
    •  Teach others reach, rescue & restoration models we have developed
    •  Build strong networks
