This presentation focuses on Courtney’s House partnerships, which will include the partnerships with CPS investigators on how we assist in locating sex trafficked youth using online social media.
Tina Frundt is a leading figure in the crusade to help children sexually exploited for commercial purposes. Ms. Frundt herself is a survivor of domestic sex trafficking. She now dedicates her life to helping women and children heal from domestic sex trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation.
Since founding Courtney’s House in August 2008, Tina and her organization have helped more than 500 victims escape from being trafficked and find a new life. She also trains law enforcement and other non-profit groups to help and provide resources to victims. She is a member of both the Washington, D.C. Anti-Trafficking Task Force and the Prince George’s County Human Trafficking Task Force.
Tina has been featured on numerous national television shows and publications, including The Oprah Show, The Montel Williams Show, CNN, and “Redbook Magazine.” In 2010, she was awarded the Frederick Douglass Award. The award is given to an individual who has survived slavery and is using their life in freedom to help others. She has also testified before the U.S. Congress about her own experiences and the need for greater protection and services for trafficked persons.
In December 2015, Tina was named to the United States Advisory Council on Human Trafficking by President Obama.
