Difference Makers

The child survivors of trafficking we serve have a lifetime of healing to work through. The healing begins when they come to us. They must learn to trust again, to trust themselves and to learn who they are and how much they are valued and loved, unconditionally. We invite you to join us as a monthly Difference Maker to help the children heal and grow into the amazing people they were meant to be! 

All levels of monthly support make an impact in the lives of the children! When you select the $125 option or a higher amount and complete 12 monthly calendar donations, you will be welcomed into the Community of Courage! 

Join us today and throughout the year to come in support of healing for these children.

Monthly Donors are Difference Makers

Party with a Purpose

What is a Party with a Purpose?
It is an informal gathering of your friends you learn more about the issue Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking (DMST) and what New Life Refuge Ministries (NLRM) is doing to fight this crime and help those who have been victimized by it.
Why host a Party with a Purpose?
It is a great way to bring awareness to the issue of domestic minor sex trafficking (DMST) and the need for restorative. By hosting a Party with a Purpose you will be part of the solution to end child sex trafficking by educating your friends and family on the issue. You and your guests will learn how to keep the children and youth in your lives safe from traffickers. The Party with a Purpose will give your guests a greater awareness of a nationwide growing problem which could affect a child in their lives and the future of our country’s youth.
What will it cost?
The cost is up to you. It’s no more than the cost of having friends over. We provide a House Party Manual to make party planning easy. Donations are not a required but are appreciated.

Courage Coin

Half of the profits from each “Courage Coin” pendant purchased from Susann’s Custom Jewelers will go to New Life Refuge Ministries’s goal of helping a rescued children shine bright again.

Dynamic Dollar

In Loving Memory of Mariza Angeles Smith who’s Legacy of Love is truly dynamic! She devised the Dynamic Dollar Campaign as a means to raise awareness to develop advocacy, and to take action on the issue of child sex trafficking. Mariza always felt, that one dollar, affordable by everyone, is the best vehicle to allow one to be aware, advocate, and certainly take action.
How does a Dollar become a Dynamic?
1) Make a collection container.
2) 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.
3) Ask the person to, in turn, “spread the word about the issue and need for housing,”– ask others to begin to collect.
4) The simple dollar over and over becomes the “Dynamic Dollar!”
5) Remember: a “decline of a dollar” for your jug is not a reflection of you personally. Keep plugging away!
