Providing life-changing services to survivors of human trafficking & exploitation.

Well, it comes from a story about female elephants...

When a mama elephant is giving birth, all the other female elephants in the herd back around her in FORMATION. They stomp and kick up dirt to throw attackers off the scent and surround the mama and incoming baby in protection.


When the baby elephant is delivered, the sister elephants all start trumpeting in celebration of new life!

Scientists tell us this: They take this FORMATION in only two cases - when under attack by predators or during the birth of a baby elephant.

This is what we do too. When our sisters are vulnerable...we get in FORMATION.

And when new life makes its entrance, when healing finally begins, we sound our trumpets because we saw it through together. We celebrate! We cheer! We raise our glasses and give thanks.

Summarized from the story by Jen Hatmaker 

So why the name The Formation Project?
