Priceless Project is a faith-based organization dedicated to the abolishment of modern day slavery. Priceless Project was founded by Carl and Tina Kadolph, after a trip to South America when they came face to face with a human trafficking victim. That experience haunted them after they returned home.
After doing much research and going through countless hours of training on the subject of human trafficking, they realized this was an epidemic, not only internationally, but right here in our own backyard.
There are woman and children tortured in modern day slavery. They are held captive, threatened, drugged and beaten by their traffickers. Then, they are made to have sex with several men a day. Many of these victims are children as young as nine years of age.
The couple could not just sit in the comfort of their own home and pretend that they didn’t know what was happening. They knew something had to be done.
Realizing that public education is the key, Tina has traveled across the United States and internationally teaching of the horrors of human trafficking. She has taught at women’s conferences, church gatherings, youth groups, colleges and universities, law enforcement organizations, fraternal orders and social clubs.

Carl and Tina have been married for 30 years and have raised two daughters, have a grandson and another on the way, and have adopted three teenage boys.
Building Safe Houses Domestically and Abroad
After the fateful meeting with the precious human trafficking victim in South America, the couple returned home and immediately set out to raise money to rescue woman and children and give them safe housing, and help them rebuild their lives.
Today they have two safe houses, with a capacity of up to 48 survivors of human trafficking, with more safe houses needed both locally and internationally.
Tina and the Priceless Project are opening a victim’s safe house in South America in the very near future and have recently secured a 28,000 square foot building in Central Florida with plans to use it for housing, rehabilitation and restoration of victims of human trafficking.
The more finances raised, the more safe housing and restored lives can be accomplished. With your help Carl and Tina can accomplish their calling of providing these much needed safe houses.
In 2000, Carl and Tina started leading teams around the world. Some of the places they have lead groups to have been Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Haiti, Trinidad, Guyana, Dominican Republic, and China, and they also work domestically here in our own backyard in Florida, Mississippi and on the Navajo Reservation in Arizona.
They currently lead volunteer trips around the world providing education, food, and clothing outreaches to the poorest areas both domestically and internationally. We are a hands on organization that goes to the interior villages in the Amazon jungle, as well as cities to provide love to the unloved, hope to the hopeless and a voice to the voiceless.
