Guardian Group has announced that it has been named a 2021 Top-Rated Nonprofit by GreatNonprofits, the leading website for community recommendations of charities and nonprofits, for the third consecutive year.
Guardian Group’s mission is to prevent and disrupt the sex trafficking of women and children while enabling partners to identify victims and predators in the United States. Our strategy is two-fold, with both an offensive and defensive component. The offensive efforts have resulted in actionable intelligence provided to law enforcement agencies across the United States, leading to victims being offered a path to freedom, while the defensive side has provided valuable training to law enforcement officers, healthcare workers, hoteliers and the community alike.
“We are honored to be named a 2021 Top-Rated Nonprofit,” says Jeff Keith, founder and CEO of Guardian Group. “We are proud of our accomplishments this year. Thus far in 2021, we have identified 127 victims of sex trafficking, including minors. We also recently launched a new program that will allow volunteers to play a more active role in this fight.”
The Top-Rated Nonprofit Award is based on the rating and number of reviews that Guardian Group received from volunteers, donors and partners.
“As a retired detective, I can’t say enough about Guardian Group. They provide a service to law enforcement that is invaluable not only because of the time they save officers but because of their thoroughness and attention to detail. There are not enough law enforcement officers in this country dedicated to the fight against sex trafficking, and Guardian Group helps to bridge that gap. They not only assist law enforcement but more importantly, they provide a voice to those who have none. Guardian Group has helped countless survivors and will continue to do so well into the future.” – Detective, Guardian Group Partner
“Guardian Group is a great example of a nonprofit making a real difference in their community,” said Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits, “Their award is well-deserved recognition not only of their work, but the tremendous support they receive, as shown by the many outstanding reviews they have received from people who have direct experience working with Guardian Group.”
GreatNonprofits is the largest donation website for nonprofits and where people share stories about their personal experiences on more than 1.6 million charities and nonprofits.
