Who We Are:
ROYLS, Inc. was founded in 2014 by Co-Founder and Executive Director Virginia Arnold to educate the community about Human Trafficking and Commercially and Sexually Exploited Children (CSEC). Virginia has been a volunteer with the Juvenile Justice System for more two decades. Her background working in the medical community combined with her knowledge from her extensive volunteer work forms a powerful advocate and resource to do this work.
ROYLS, Inc. is a member of AC United which is a coalition of community-based nonprofit organizations, local and federal law enforcement partners who provide a multi-disciplinary, trauma-informed, victim-centered response to human trafficking.
The mission of the organization is to raise community awareness through educational presentations, about the detrimental effects of Human Trafficking. We further seek to offer preventative information to the targeted population, their families and communities. For the victims, we are committed to creating a safe and nurturing environment, renewing self-esteem and providing skills and resources to assist in successful reentry to the workforce, educational/vocational institutions and rebuilding lives. Only by collaboration and the application of innovative strategic models can we hope to eradicate Human Trafficking.
