On April 10 New Friends New Life honored the Letot Girls’ Residential Treatment Center with the 2015 Local  ProtectHer Award at their annual WINGS Luncheon. “We offer our sincere appreciation to the Letot Center, Letot Capital Foundation and Caren Prothro for their commitment to youth in our community,” said New Friends New Life Executive Director Katie Pedigo.  “Letot is a shining example of a public/private partnership making the difference in the lives of the invisible girls in our city.”

Two additional organizations received awards at the luncheon.  The State ProtectHer Honoree is the Texas Department of Public Safety’s Criminal Investigations Division Human Trafficking Squad and the National Honoree is Sabre.   New Friends New Life restores and empowers formerly trafficked girls and sexually exploited women and children.
