Pro Bono work is a big deal to us. We have a variety of organizations that we support with our time and talent. We think you’d like to know about them, too!
PLNU’s Center for Justice & Reconciliation is on the front-line in San Diego in the work to end modern day slavery. In the Fall of 2014 we launched the Beauty for Ashes Scholarship Fund, the first scholarship for survivors of human trafficking. Canopy owner Kim Jones led the hugely successful crowdfund campaign to launch the Fund. She also provides ongoing social media, marketing and development support.
San Diego was named one of the top cities in the U.S. for human trafficking. While this is not a reputation we are proud to claim, people throughout our county are working tirelessly to eradicate human trafficking and provide care and services to survivors. Generate Hope is one of the champions. Providing long-term housing, counseling, healing and education, Generate Hope is empowering survivors to become thrivers. Canopy supports Generate Hope with marketing materials and Kim is a volunteer at the house.
San Diego’s primary website promoting information about human trafficking and housing the community’s only calendar of human trafficking awareness events, this website is maintained by Kim.
Cura is a residence for children who have lost their parents to AIDS in Kenya, Africa. A place of hope and joy, Cura’s International Program Director is one of Kim’s oldest (and most favorite) friends. Hayden and Kim go back to first grade, where they caused problems in Miss Rumsey’s classroom. Canopy built the Cura website and cheers on Hayden as she works to advocate for kids.
