We walk alongside survivors of sex trafficking, helping to support and empower them through their restoration process.
We provide a caring and supportive place for victims to feel safe.
We give information and “Freedom Bags” to help meet physical needs.
We connect survivors and families with trusted direct referrals who can best meet their individualized human trafficking needs.
We offer one-to-one support through individualized care plans for each survivor.
We engage survivors in a 12-week support group utilizing the Ending the Game curriculum, to help them re-establish healthy relationships.
We provide assistance with various needs (such as clothing/food, counseling, education, legal needs, tattoo cover-ups, etc.)
Karis Home is our long-term residential care program for biological females of sex trafficking age 12-21. We embrace a therapeutic model of care that uses a holistic, trauma-informed perspective to encourage the self-empowerment of each resident in the home. The program follows the principles of understanding trauma and its impact, promoting safety, ensuring cultural competence, supporting resident control, choice, and autonomy, providing integrative care, promoting positive relationships, and believing recovery is possible.
*Karis Home is currently on hold.
When renovation is completed, “The Harbor” will become the hub of our Survivor Support.
It will be set up as a Drop-In center where victims of human trafficking can come into from off the streets to receive grace and support for their individualized needs.
It may not look like much now, but from the first time we saw it, we knew that this building was the perfect place to house and grow our non-residential support for survivors.
Stay tuned for the transformation and grand opening coming 2023!
Our plan is to take this property, clean up everything that has been broken, and restore its original beauty, while also incorporating its scars into a new future as it serves as a place of safety and hope in its community. In the same way, our Survivor Support program will serve to restore the original God-given identity of the broken individuals that come through its doors, guiding them forward into a life full of hope and belonging.
