The event is much more than just a fundraiser. It also brings awareness to human trafficking in the area. When Call to Freedom held its first community breakfast 7 years ago, they never thought it would grow to the  nearly 1,200-person crowd that came out to the event. The breakfast is held to help fund the Sioux Falls non-profit which supports survivors of human trafficking throughout South Dakota. ”This fundraising piece is really important because it allows us to provide some basic needs for our clients that otherwise, we can’t get through other funding sources,” Call to Freedom Director of Program Development Ashton Ekdom said. Call to Freedom’s ultimate goal is to help individuals get the services and help they need to find a new sense of normal in the community.
