    Featured Speaker: Ilonka Deaton

    Author, Speaker, & Recording Artist

    Ilonka Deaton’s inspiring message of hope is one of victorious life for any wounded heart. Growing up in South Africa, she was held in sexual slavery bondage for five years through the threat of her and her family’s life. Now set free and redeemed, she sings and speaks to audiences across the U.S.  

    Runaway and missing children are highly at-risk of being trafficked as the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children estimates that 1 in 7 runaways were likely victims of sex trafficking.  

    Saved In America gathers intelligence and evidence to locate and identify missing children and trafficked victims, violent pedophiles (pimps), and trafficking locations. The Law Enforcement Liaison reports all information to local and/or federal law enforcement officers.

    For victims of sexual exploitation, we assist in procuring legal representation, safe housing, and rehabilitative therapy.
