After leaving a trafficking situation, a woman arrived in Dallas with her daughter to live with a family member, but the living arrangements did not work out as planned. She went to live with another family who physically, mentally, and emotionally abused her, and ultimately kicked her out of their home.

With no money and nowhere to go, she went to her home country’s local consulate. The consul general asked Mosaic Family Services Visit disclaimer page for help. Mosaic’s Outreach Team has a strong partnership with the consulate that enabled them to provide vital services for the survivor and ensure her safe transport back home.

A representative from the consulate later stated:

"Mosaic provided a roof, food, protection, psychological assistance, and emotional support that has been decisive in completing this process successfully. From my team and from the authorities of my country, I want to express our most sincere gratitude to Mosaic Family Services, Mr. John Marin, and all the staff who do an extraordinary job for the most vulnerable community affected by social conflict."
