Soroptimist International of Kent recently donated $4,150 to the Genesis Project, a program that offers hope for a new life to young women and girls involved in domestic minor sex trafficking in the South King County area.

Linda Simpson, president of the Kent Soroptimists, left, presented the check to Julie Snyder, a case manager for the Genesis Project, at a gathering at the Golden Steer Restaurant in Kent on April 22.

Police, along with the help of many congregations, launched the drop-in shelter to help prostitutes in SeaTac. With further support, the project hopes to grow and expands its services, including counseling, basic needs, education and rehabilitation.

The Genesis Project, a non-profit organization, operates through donations from individuals, churches and businesses.

Find the Genesis Project on Facebook for more information.
