Sam Summers Rivas sm

Founder of RubiesLV

Samantha Summers-Rivas is the founder of RubiesLV, a faith-based organization that reaches people enslaved in the sex industry. Samantha had a vision for restoring the lives of others after she experienced a powerful deliverance in her own life from these types of addictions and problems. At just sixteen years of age, Samantha lost her father to cancer.  This trauma—together with the absence of her working mother—left a tremendous void. She tried to fulfill that void by seeking monetary gain. This propelled her in to the sex industry in various ways.

It wasn’t until she found faith as a born-again Christian that she broke free from both the pain of her past and the subsequent addictive behaviors it left her with. Samantha’s traumatic experience in the industry and inspirational story of rebuilding have fueled her unparalleled passion for people—making her an extremely effective, compassionate, and relatable advocate for Las Vegas sex trafficking victims and their families
