Our model of aftercare places trafficking survivors in safe families rooted in Christ's love and committed to prayer and worship. We believe that the family is God’s vehicle for restoration and that national house parents (mothers and fathers) are best positioned to connect with the hearts of the survivors in their care and provide them with individualized care.
We address the survivor's holistic needs through love, provision, counseling, discipleship, empowerment and education. Additionally, we are committed to walking through the entire restoration and reintegration process with each survivor. We want to adequately prepare the children for reintegration and adult life, through education, ministry, music, art, and technical skills, etc.
We see a generation of children that have been rescued from oppression, restored by God’s healing power and released into ministry as the forces of change in the world. Reintegration is integral to the normal development of the child because it is in the context of the greater society that identity and destiny is formed and can be reformed. God creates us and places us in families, villages, communities, churches and it is there that we must be able to give and receive love.
We believe that Jesus’ restorative work enables a great exchange to take place. Where there was brutality, there is now love and gentleness; where there was deprivation, there is now adequate provision; where there was hopelessness, hope is now provided at every interaction; where there was disorder and confusion, there is now discipline; where there was lack of dignity, there is now respect; where there was weakness and lack of voice, there is now strength; where there was shame, there is now peace; where there was control, there is now freedom; where there was hate, there is now love.
“I was stinky. I was smelly. I was rotten. And He took me and He made me something beautiful. And to me that is so wonderful. That is so worth giving my life to….I just think He is so wonderful and I don’t want to stop talking about Him, because my heart just fills with joy. Oh, and I just want everybody to know about Him…I know (God) loves me, and He’s real.” Helena Evans - formerly prostituted, now helps victims of sexual exploitation
"We know only too well that what we are doing is nothing more than a drop in the ocean. But if the drop were not there, the ocean would be missing something." - Mother Teresa
To proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners
To bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called priests of the Lord. They will be named ministers of our God.
-Taken from Isaiah 61
