The Set Me Free Project Presents Sydney Loofe Scholarship

The Set Me Free Project ( had a wonderful night on May 17 honoring Sydney Loofe by presenting a scholarship in her memory. This scholarship was awarded to Abigail O. of Sutton, NE. She intends on attending either the University of Nebraska at Omaha or Hastings College to obtain her bachelors in criminology and criminal justice.

“Human trafficking happens more than what we see in the headlines,” said Abigail. “I hope that as a criminal behavioral analyst or forensic psychologist, I can try to understand why people act and think as they do and playing an active role in stopping violence in the community I live in.”

The Set Me Free Project loves the Loofe family and they are so happy that they are able to honor Sydney in this way. Their hope is that Abigail will use this scholarship to flourish in her career, preventing situations like Sydney’s from ever happening.

The organization would also like to thank everyone who showed them support during Omaha Gives! on May 22. This, year they hope to use the funds received to expand their reach throughout Nebraska, Iowa, and a few new states, such as South Dakota and Missouri. If you didn’t get the chance to donate during the event and would still like to, you can do so by visiting
