New Life Refuge Ministries


Our refuge consists of 2 homes that are long-term therapeutic homes where child sex trafficking survivors are able to heal and receive trauma-informed care. The girls can process their trauma in this home environment that includes loving staff, daily family activities, and various therapeutic activities such as equine therapy.

We also offer a supervised independent living village for girls who have turned 18 but would still like to be supported in their next endeavors, such as going to higher education or getting a job.

The Braselton home was our first home built in 2018. This home was graciously donated by Braselton Development and consists of a spacious living area with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. It features 2 large porches equipped with rocking chairs overlooking our pond.


The Valero home was second to come in 2022 and was generously donated by the Valero Energy Foundation. This home has 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms a large living area, and is complete with a large wrap-around porch with rocking chairs overlooking the serene landscape.

Independent Living Villiage

The newest addition to our refuge campus is the Independent Living Village made possible by the Charity League Foundation. The village is in a separate section of the property and has 4 living cabins and 1 kitchen/laundry cabin. This village is designed for girls 18 and older who choose to continue to have our support as they begin the next chapter of their life. This village allows them to have independence while still having support and guidance while navigating a 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!
