More Too Life was founded in 2000 by Dr. Brook Bello, author, actor and survivor of childhood trafficking, who then incorporated the organization in 2006. More Too Life addresses sexual violence and human trafficking inflicted on children (and the adults they grow into if not rescued.) More Too Life works in two area, victim services and demand prevention. It is a social justice, anti-sexual violence, and human trafficking agency that has served over 75,000 individuals in prevention, training, and victim services. Though More Too Life is a small agency it has a global footprint and is unique in its ability to provide direct and indirect services that affect many. More Too Life has strengthened the protocol of many other agencies by providing essential life-saving services, mentoring, education and mental health treatment to its clients. More Too Life provides particular attention and support to homeless victims, young adult women, transgenders, and others who were violated as children and are now often treated as outcasts. The legislation and training they provide effectively assists case managers, officers, federal agents, families, communities, and others in how to work with and talk to fearful youth who often come off as uncooperative and angry.
More Too Life assists those we serve in navigating through all the branches of our judicial system, including criminal and child welfare, often linking them to treatment programs, foster families, half-way homes and residential facilities to address their immediate needs. In addition, More Too Life helps survivors focus on continued education, higher learning, goal building and discovering their identity.
More Too Life does a great deal of work to address the issue of fatherless families. Their curriculum is striving to redefine the Legacy of Fatherhood in America. Men who have either volunteered or been court ordered to take the course have shared that the course has changed their lives. More Too Life believes that re-defining fatherhood is fundamental to ending human trafficking in our world.
More Too Life has a new partnership with Ringling College of Art and Design, Semkhor Productions, and actor Dylan McDermott to develop a multimedia platform that hopes to change the way the world views exploitation and women’s rights. The new college course for freshmen, “The Game Changer,” deals with campus safety, consent, victimization, rape and exploitation. More Too Life is honored to have been largely funded by former dodger manager Kevin Malone and credits him for is genuine belief in their unique work. More Too Life, via Dr. Brook Bello, has worked with the NOVO Formation, Diana Rockefeller as a mentor, THORN, Demand Abolition and other great agencies.
