Kim Biddle - Saving Innocence, CEO
Kim Biddle, MSW, is the Founder and Executive Director of Saving Innocence, a public benefit 501(c)(3) pioneering programs to rescue and restore child victims of sex trafficking. Working closely with the Los Angeles Supreme Court and Los Angeles Probation, Kim designs protocols and systems to ensure the proper identification, rescue, and treatment of child victims, as well as the appropriate criminal charges brought against the traffickers. She oversees a team who provide crisis response, advocacy and case management services to minors who are rescued from sex trafficking in Los Angeles County.

She earned her Masters of Social Work from the University of Southern California, and went on to receive her Masters in Global Health Certification from the Harvard Program in Refugee Trauma. She has earned special certifications to work with survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking.

Kim Biddle, MSW Founder and Executive Director
Show bio Kim Biddle began her work with human trafficking in 2003 when she traveled to Thailand and Cambodia in partnership with Saddleback Church and the International Justice Mission. She returned to the United States to help found the Saddleback Justice Task Force and focus on aftercare resource development for caretakers of survivors in Third World countries. Over the years, she has narrowed her focus from global human trafficking to domestic minor sex trafficking, leading her to found Saving Innocence to provide the needed crisis response and advocacy for this underserved population in the United States. She works with local judges, probation officers, aftercare placements, police detectives, and social workers to create new policies within the legal system and social services to ensure survivors receive proper advocacy from the point of rescue to rehabilitation.
For the past seven years, Kim has launched and developed programs to advocate for at-risk youth and survivors of human trafficking in multiple countries throughout Africa, the Caribbean, and the United States. Most recently, she assisted the launch of outreach programs for street children in Kenya and an aftercare facility for child survivors in Haiti, in partnership with national organizations. For the past two years she was also contracted out by the University of Southern California to conduct research relating to effective intervention strategies for homeless youth in Los Angeles County. Pioneering programs to ensure comprehensive aftercare is provided to domestic minor sex trafficking victims in Los Angeles County, Kim has advocated for youth ranging in ages from 11-17 who were rescued within Los Angeles County. Advocacy for each child begins at crisis intervention and includes support through full restoration - no matter how many times the child reenters the crisis stage. For youth who had no one to turn to for help, Kim has coordinated services to meet each child's mental health and medical needs, assist with aftercare placement, provide ongoing mentorship, and offer support to the child's family.
Kim has also pioneered prevention and intervention programs throughout California to advocate for the safety of children in schools against traffickers. She has designed human trafficking trainings for a variety of professional fields on how to prevent trafficking, identify child victims, and best coordinate to provide optimal aftercare to survivors. By training professionals who encounter at-risk youth such as law enforcement, district attorneys, social workers, probation officers, and schoolteachers, Kim has impacted thousands of children by empowering front-line workers to take action. Additional curriculum and resources have been developed for schoolteachers to teach students in the classroom about trafficking, empowering youth to make safe and healthy choices. A lead expert and sought after speaker, Kim has trained hundreds of community leaders, spoken by invitation at the University of Southern California and the University of California, Los Angeles, and presented at national conferences and symposiums surrounding the issues of human trafficking and at-risk youth.
Kim earned a Bachelor of Science in Education, a Multiple-Subject Teaching Credential, and a Master of Social Work from the University of Southern California. She went on to receive her Masters in Global Health certification from the Harvard Program in Refugee Trauma, and has earned special certifications to work with survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking. However, Kim would say that her true education and inspiration derives from her own survivorship from sexual exploitation throughout her youth. She states, "Everything we overcome can be used to help others in their overcoming.
