Our Vision

Through collaborative partnerships in the Central Valley and across the nation, Without Permission confronts the culture that promotes sex trafficking. We restore the victimized, educate our youth to prevent victimization, and attack the lies that drive demand.

Our Mission

Without Permission exists to lead the church and community into the battle that will end sex trafficking.

Our History

Since 2010, Without Permission has become a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that works in the battle to end sex trafficking through Prevention, Justice, and Restoration. Beginning as a 2 person organization and now 50+ strong, WP has developed roles for staff and volunteer to serve city and survivor. Through partnerships and task force relationships in local counties, WP has created a local response to the evil of sex trafficking. In September of 2015 Just His House began the journey of survivor restoration as our day center for navigation and restoration. The continued mobilization of the faith community, thousands of citizens and market place leadership drives the hope of ending the culture of human trafficking in the Central Valley.

Our Values

Without Permission strives to operate within five core values


We believe in giving of self in order to meet the needs of individuals and the communities that we work in.


It is the purpose of Without Permission to create, fund, and serve a local Central Valley response to sex trafficking. Our Cities, Our People!


There must always be a balance between serving within the organization and supporting one’s own family. Family is always first.


Above all else, Jesus is the reason for the work that we do. Being whole in body, soul and spirit allows our team to effectively lead and serve.


We desire to have longevity to the mission that we so passionately give our lives to. Only through excellence, will there be years of service to our cities.
