Kim Biddle founded Saving Innocence in 2010 to provide rescue and restoration to the thousands of child victims within the United States. While work began overseas in 2003, eradicating human trafficking in partnership with local organizations throughout Southeast Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean, Kim's conviction to help children in our own backyard led her to refocus her efforts domestically. Kim has received multiple awards for her pioneering anti-trafficking work, has been featured on ABC and CBS news programs, and advises state officials in the creation of legislation, leading a national movement to restore the cultural value of innocence and human worth.
Saving Innocence rescues and restores child victims of sex trafficking in the U.S. through strategic community partnerships with local law enforcement, social service providers, and schools, while mobilizing communities to prevent abuse and increase neighborhood safety. SI is the first organization contracted by Los Angeles County to respond to crisis calls 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, providing victims with basic needs, case management, mentorship, and therapeutic support groups. To date, Saving Innocence has provided a continuum of care to hundreds of children, trained thousands of frontline responders, provided assistance on state and federal human-trafficking cases, and consulted government leaders in the creation of new laws and policies nationwide.
