We are working to provide underage survivors of sex trafficking a safe and home-like environment to live and transition into healthy lifestyles. The New Life Refuge Ministries Home of Hope is a place of new beginnings where freedom is gained and souls are healed.
Our Refuge is a safe place for these young victims. They will receive trauma informed counseling, life skills training, schooling as well as equine, drama, art and other therapies so we can truly see beauty come from ashes.
Focusing on establishing normalcy in the lives of the survivors we serve, we will have house parents who serve full time, round the clock. House grandparents will act a relief and 24 hour awake staff will also be available to ensure the safety of the survivors. Our seven homes will each act as a family unit with all of the needs of the survivors being provided, from food and personal care items to education and specialized therapies.
A team of professionals will assist each girl on her healing journey while focussing on full restoration and establishing a healthy transition from our program. Whether the need is for complex PTSD treatment, specialized mental health care or other needs, our trained staff will be available to bring holistic care and help these teens find true healing and restoration.
Our first of seven planned homes is slated to open in the summer of 2017. Currently there are less than 30 beds available for survivors of domestic minor sex trafficking in the state of Texas and our ministry hopes to open between 28-42 beds once our property is fully developed.
