New Life Refuge Ministries


Our refuge consists of two long-term therapeutic homes where child sex trafficking survivors can heal and receive trauma-informed care. In this nurturing home environment, the girls can process their trauma with the support of loving staff, daily family activities, and various therapeutic interventions, including equine therapy.

Additionally, we offer a supervised independent living village for young women who have turned 18 but still seek support as they pursue higher education or employment. This program provides the necessary guidance and resources to help them transition successfully to the next stage of their lives.

Why New Life Refuge?


The Braselton home was our first home built in 2018. This home was made possible by Braselton Development and other generous donors. It consists of a spacious living area with 5 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. It features 2 large porches complete with rocking chairs. The front porch overlooks the pond.


The Valero Home, our second home, opened in 2022 thanks to a generous donation from the Valero Energy Foundation. This home features four bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, a large living area, and an attached schoolroom. Its large wrap-around porch, complete with rocking chairs, overlooks a pond and the serene landscape, providing a peaceful setting for recovery and growth.

Independent Living Villiage

The newest addition to our refuge campus is the Independent Living Village, made possible by a generous grant from the Charity League of Corpus Christi. Located across the campus from our two therapeutic homes, the village features four cabins for residents and one cabin that houses a full kitchen, laundry facilities, and community space.

This village is designed for young women aged 18 and older who choose to continue receiving our support as they begin the next chapter of their lives. It allows them to live more independently while still having access to the support and guidance they need to navigate this new stage of life.

What's Gift Cards for Goodies?

Our “Gift Cards for Goodies” has two meanings for the child survivors of trafficking healing at our campus. Gift cards are a reward for healthy choices and behavior and of course, they can then pick out tangible “goodies” with the gift cards. The program provides recognition for the child survivors when they hit a milestone, help another student out, grow in leadership, go above and beyond, or are just “caught doing something good”.

How does a Dollar become Dynamic?

1) Contact New Life Refuge Ministries to complete your For Benefit of Fundraising commitment before raising money. Call 361-946-6331 or EMail:

2.) Make a collection container. (Graphics/template provided)

3) What you simply say to people in your office, people in any group, and / or to people you meet: “Please give $1.00 to help stamp out human trafficking.” That’s all that is needed. If they have questions give a simple explanation about New Life Refuge Home of Hope for underage survivors.

4) Ask the person to, in turn, “spread the word about the issue and need for housing,”– ask others to begin to collect.

5) The simple dollar over and over becomes the “Dynamic Dollar!”

6) Remember: a “decline of a dollar” for your jug is not a reflection of you personally. Keep plugging away!
