The mission of HRF is to address awareness and education of issues that that drive human trafficking. FASD is conservatively reported to be between 2 to 5% of the US population and comprises 50% of the prison populations for both men and women.
Mental health issues, like FASD contributes to the issue of human trafficking. Individuals with FASD are especially vulnerable due to dysmaturity, impulsivity and limited understanding of cause and effect. Most significantly they want friends, are easily preyed upon and struggle to understanding how their actions are connected to extremely dangerous consequences.
Due to high numbers and the community related issues of mental health of FASD, the board of HRF decided Embraced was a very worth while project to sponsor. Production is being managed by Sam In A Can [Productions] on behalf of HRF.
