Andrea Wind, Founder

The beginning of lighthouse for life

One Sunday, God placed a call on her heart after hearing about human trafficking in a sermon.

Andrea Wind had never really heard much about human trafficking until that day. But she felt God calling her to do something. She eventually founded Lighthouse for Life in 2014, through a vision of a lighthouse surrounded by smaller homes with people from every direction coming towards the light and finding safety and rescue.

Andrea remains a board member, speaker, and visionary for Lighthouse for Life. Watch the video to hear the story in her own words.

Human trafficking is in your community.

Whether we want to believe it or not, human trafficking is happening here in South Carolina. Not just in slums or big cities, but average neighborhoods, right under our noses — and maybe even to someone that you know and care about.

Know the facts. Know the signs. And be prepared to join the fight.
