Organizational Principles

Purpose & Mission Statement:

We exist to love, rescue, and heal child victims of trafficking, slavery, and sexual exploitation.

Denomination(s): Interdenominational

Doctrinal Statement:

We are Christians who take seriously the Scripture that reads: “Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth” (1 John 3:18). And it is with compassion energized and sustained by love that we act on behalf of victimized children wherever we find them. Though we are committed Christians, we offer aid without requiring those that we help to embrace our faith. When Jesus fed the 5,000, he did not withhold from those who refused to believe. He gave freely, and so do we.

Core Values:

No child deserves to be trafficked. No child deserves to be sexually exploited. We seek to end the trafficking and exploitation of children completely. And we work to provide the best possible care to survivors.
