About Us

ONEless  started in 2010 when ONEless founder and executive director, Cortney Bartemus, learned about the horrors of human trafficking both domestically and globally. Initially, she was overwhelmed by the magnitude of the problem. Determined to get involved in the fight against human trafficking and to prevent vulnerable children from falling prey to this evil crime, she and a committed group founded ONEless with the idea that instead of being overwhelmed by the problem, we must help one at a time. Everyone can help one, and imagine what would happen if everyone helped one.
