Gems Uncovered is a faith based organization established in July 2011. It is our passion to take action and to do something in the fight against Human Trafficking. Our focus is in the areas of Prevention and After Care. We have street outreach teams that go out every Friday night from 10pm to midnight in the streets of Long Beach, Compton, and Los Angeles ministering to the young girls and women prostituting on the street. We pray with every woman, girl & male God presents to us providing resources and letting them know they are not alone.
Our vision of having a Drop in Center became a reality in October of 2012. The Drop in Center in Long Beach provides after care services for survivors of sex trafficking. We offer a safe place for them to heal emotionally as well as providing access to resources such as mentors, short and long term shelter, counseling, GED preparation, goal setting, resume writing, and more. We provide a Sexual Exploitation Diversion Program called Free 2B Me. (see Services to learn more about the program)
"GEMS Uncovered is a trusted resource for human trafficking victims in Long Beach and we are grateful for their service."
