Our Vision

We exist to end sex trafficking in the Central Valley.

Our Promise

We restore the victimized, educate our youth to prevent exploitation, and attack the lies that drive demand.

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 founder

Debbie Johnson is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Without Permission Inc., a faith based non-profit organization founded in 2010 and located in the Central Valley of California.

 

Debbie has been married to her husband Chris for 33 years.  They have three children, Logan, Dylan and Megan. Debbie is a licensed minister. Her mission is to bring human trafficking education and prevention training to the Central Valley and to provide life restoration to survivors through a Crisis Navigator. The Crisis Navigator program, which she developed, provides trauma informed mentors to the survivors of human trafficking and exploitation.  The Crisis Navigator team to date has served over 700 survivors of sex trafficking and exploitation in the Central Valley.

 

Debbie has also developed and presented educational training programs to law enforcement, juvenile probation, social services, school administrators, and emergency medical staff. She developed a campus education program called #NotAPriceTag. This program is taught in Stanislaus and San Joaquin County junior high and high schools. She has implemented a “Parent Partnership” program to help nurture & support the families who have experienced sex trafficking and exploitation. Without Permission has provided training to over 27,000 community members to date. Debbie has always had a desire to disrupt the demand side of sex trafficking and in 2021 she partnered with a national organization that operates in 22 states. This partnership is a key part of the “I Am Change” men’s movement to end sex trafficking in the Central Valley.

 

Debbie continues to collaborate with people in key leadership positions throughout the Central Valley who share her commitment to end sex trafficking. She was instrumental in developing the “209 Freedom Project” Human Trafficking Task Force along with the Stanislaus County District Attorney, Birgit Fladager.
