The Monarch Wings- Hope Against Trafficking nonprofit in Pontiac, Michigan is in the process of remodeling a safehouse to help female sex trafficking survivors.

With the help from nonprofit Leadership Oakland, the Monarch Wings hopes to improve the neighborhood that surrounds the home by removing garbage and changing the landscape layout.
