PLACE OF HOPE
FIGHTING FOR WHAT'S RIGHT
Place of Hope at The Leighan and David Rinker Campus is a unique faith-based, state-licensed children’s organization providing various support services that meet children and families in the midst of their current situation- whatever that might be. Children and families can find dignity, guidance, and hope through various programs and efforts at Place of Hope at The Leighan and David Rinker Campus – Placing Hope in a Child’s Future. With regard to children entrusted to our care and their families, we strive to foster hope rather than despair, potential rather than limitations, healing rather than hurting, belonging rather than isolation, and what the future can be, rather than what the past has been. Place of Hope at The Leighan and David Rinker Campus is dedicated to providing a stable and loving family environment for hurting children and their families. We are committed to meeting desperate needs in our community by sharing God’s love and placing hope in their lives – one child and family at a time. (Place of Hope - About Us)
Só Dança stepped in to support Place of Hope’s educational and prevention program in an effort to put a stop to human trafficking. We had the opportunity to bring their film into our corporate office for viewing so awareness would start within our own work community. We also thought to ourselves, “What more can we do as a dance manufacturing company to raise awareness?” A dream quickly became a reality when we thought a great way to support Place of Hope in this initiative would be through the art of dance.
This is where our exciting new project comes in! “The issue of human trafficking moves people and dance moves people, so we decided to bring the two together for a powerful two-part video project we will be releasing in January 2020- Human Trafficking Awareness Month. Florida is #3 in the U.S for human trafficking rates and The Super Bowl has the highest rates of human trafficking than any other event in the U.S. throughout the year. This year it is in Miami,FL, so we knew this would be the perfect opportunity to get the word out before countless people fall victim to human trafficking once again.”- Summer Douglas, Project Manager. We partnered with a professional dance company in Miami, Dimensions Dance Theatre Miami, and filmmaker, Bryson Hatfield, to create a beautiful two-part series that we hope will spread awareness about this issue.
All proceeds raised from the videos will go directly to Place of Hope and their cause. We were also presented with the opportunity to be co-presenting sponsors at Place of Hope’s 2nd Annual Human Trafficking Prevention and Education Luncheon on January 28th, 2020 where Dimensions Dance Theatre will be guest performing. We know this is all just the beginning of our exciting partnership with Place of Hope.
Só Dança is honored to be in partnership with such amazing organizations and we would love for YOU to also partner with us in this initiative.
