Q&A with Jane A. Rose and Jessica Turner-Waugh: New Friends New Life

Founded in Dallas, Texas in 1998, New Friends New Life (NFNL) restores and empowers formerly trafficked and sexually exploited women, teen girls, and children. By providing access to education, job training, interim financial assistance, mental health and spiritual support, New Friends New Life helps women, teen girls and children overcome backgrounds of abuse, addiction, poverty, and limited opportunities. We recently had the opportunity to visit with Jane A. Rose and Jessica Turner-Waugh who are co-chairing the upcoming luncheon, and learn more about why they are involved with NFNL.
