Hello Navi

By Sandy Storm

A novella about human trafficking, written by a survivor, based on actual events. A message of hope for anyone who has experienced abuse, addiction, rape, or thinks God was distant when they were in a dark place.

Make it Zero

By Mary Frances Bowley

“When we correct the factors that keep children at risk, we can make a difference in the lives of those children and the adults they’ll grow up to be.” — Mary Frances Bowley.

Not For Sale

By David Batstone

“Human trafficking is not an issue of the left or right, blue states or red states, but a great moral tragedy we can unite to stop… Not for Sale is a must-read to see how you can join the fight.” — Jim Wallis.

Redeeming Love

By Francine Rivers

California’s gold country, 1850. A time when men sold their souls for a bag of gold and women sold their bodies for a place to sleep. Angel expects nothing from men but betrayal. Sold into prostitution as a child, she survives by keeping her hatred alive. And what she hates most are the men who use her, leaving her empty and dead inside.

Renting Lucy

By Linda Smith with Cindy Coloma

Step into the darkness of the trafficking underworld. Meet the actual people who live there. Hear their words – and sense the terror and despair.

The Slave Across the Street

By Theresa L. Flores

Most people in the U.S. still believe human trafficking is something that happens to foreign women, men and children–not something that happens to their own.

The White Umbrella

By Mary Frances Bowley

We hear about trafficking on the nightly news and in special interest stories from around the world, but it occurs daily in communities all around us.

An Important Tool in the Fight

Legislation works to prosecute traffickers and johns and helps in victim identification and restoration.

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: Info@NewLifeRefuge.com

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!
