A Life

Sadly, those most vulnerable to predatory behavior are often raised by young mothers, with many in fatherless homes. These families struggle to meet even the most basic needs of stability and protection. At young ages, abuse is often experienced within what should be a safe space, leading to the introduction of negative influences on young, developing minds. For many, this loss of innocence is the beginning of a cycle of trauma that can lead to running away, alcohol/substance abuse, mental health struggles, and even suicide.

This destructive lifestyle creates a spiral of hopelessness, and many victims do not believe they will live to see their late teens or early twenties. But there is hope. A single moment of determination can be enough to inspire someone to leave an abusive situation and reclaim their power. Even small acts of kindness and gestures of love can significantly impact a person's life. Although it can be exhausting to fight for survival, hope can empower a person to keep moving forward.

In 2013, Katherine Elaine Gallegos tragically lost her life, but her legacy lives on through the

Katherine Elaine Gallegos Foundation, or Keeping Every Girl Free, derived from her initials (KEG+F). 

Our team comprises experienced experts whose lives have been repurposed. Each member has a unique story and lived experience, and we are committed to providing resources and mentorship to victims and survivors of abuse and exploitation.


By supporting our cause, you can help us provide tangible assistance to those who need it most. 

Thank You - April, Valerie, Dina,          Melissa, Morgan, & Gina
