“You may choose to look the other way, but you can never say again that you did not know.”
– William Wilberforce
The church from afar can partner with this critical work through prayer. Prayers sustain the staff through the difficult daily work and guide the boys through their extreme trauma. Ultimately, praying for this work brings change in the lives of boys, awareness to the issue and clarity to your role.
As Blackbox provides healing from the past, joy in the present and purpose for the future, individuals, churches and businesses have partnered through specific projects. We could not continue to do this important work without the support and awareness raised by our individual partners.
Our work would not be possible without your help and support. You can raise awareness for Blackbox by telling friends and family. Another great way to spread awareness and spark conversations about the mission of Blackbox International is by repping us with some great gear!
Blackbox is at the front edge of providing holistic aftercare for boys rescued from sex-trafficking. A trauma-based narrative curriculum was created for Blackbox to use specifically with boys. This resource is something we have been able to share with other like-minded organizations in their efforts to provide healing, joy and purpose.

“What if every church in America had a ministry to stand against modern slavery?”

Hear how others have helped
A mother and her sons gathered Legos and other building blocks as a gift for the boys. A church in California joined with Blackbox to provide a drum set so a boy could continue learning and growing in his skill and desire to find a purpose.
A business partnered with Blackbox to provide resources in a new classroom. Basic supplies, desks and computers help aid the teacher in the learning environment. The new computers allow the boys to access weekly tutoring for English and Math.
A group of teens hosted a 5k to raise awareness for Blackbox and get more people involved in the fight against trafficking. Another partner has held an annual run and fun walk in Tulsa to raise funds and spread information about the work being done.
