What’s BRAVE?

It’s a foster-informed catalytic event specific for foster girls, where they can be celebrated for who they are and reminded of their strength, identity, and worth.


An astonishingly high number of domestic human trafficking survivors are coming from the foster care system. BRAVE is simply the first step to intercept that. Why can’t the Church reach them before the traffickers?

How BRAVE works:

A church will host a BRAVE event and invite current foster girls and share empowerment themes and hopeful messages:
1. GATHER: We see you; you matter
2. INSPIRE: We believe you; you can do it
3. CONNECT: We are with you; you’re not alone

The Salvation Army has put together a DYI Manual to help Churches plan a BRAVE event and a foster-grad written journal for each of the foster girls who attend the event.
