Our goal is to create an environment in which victims of human trafficking can be empowered, educated, and self-confident.
In 2017, Tiffany Liles founded our Sun-Rise to go beyond the services already being provided through her behavioral services company, Behavioral Services of Nevada. She saw a human need for additional support of the families and kids the company was serving. This led to the creation of the SUN program. A the same time, as a survivor of sex trafficking, she was continuing to search for ways to help the sexually exploited in Las Vegas/Clark County. This led to the RISE program.
Ms. Tiffany Liles currently serves as Chairperson/President/Executive Director of Sun-Rise. In addition, she is CEO of Behavioral Services of Nevada and is pursuing her masters degree from Nevada State College.
