How It All Began
Years ago, a businessman in Colorado named Chris traveled to see his friend’s rescue work in South Asia, where he witnessed the horror of child trafficking firsthand. After his trip, Chris returned home determined to help in any way possible, with the memory of young girls and boys being sold for sex fresh in his mind. For years, he rallied his church, friends and family to support his friend’s work to provide housing, education and adoptive families to rescued children. This became the cornerstone of Life for the Innocent, which launched as an official entity headquartered in Fort Collins, Colorado, five years after Chris’ experience in South Asia. In 2014, LFTI added staff members (including Chris as Executive Director) and a board of directors, and received its 501(c)3 in 2015.
Life for the Innocent is a faith-based organization partnering with communities to rescue, restore and renew children affected by human trafficking. Since Chris’ initial trip to South Asia, LFTI has rescued more than 5,000 children from sex, labor, and organ trafficking, providing new life and hope one child at a time.
