To reflect the grace of God to victims and survivors of human trafficking.
Our Core Values

Value - Every human being has inherent value as an individual created in the image of God, regardless of what they have done, what has been done to them, what they believe, or what their background is.

Education & Awareness - Through presentations, trainings, Princess not a Product, SUDS, and SOLD: The Human Trafficking Experience
How To Partner & Serve With Us
It all begins with prayer and this application! As you complete the application, pray that the Lord would reveal where He is calling you to use your talents and gifts. A Mirror Ministries Staff will be in touch to set up an interview time. This is a time when you can hear more about our vision for Mirror Ministries and we can hear more about your heart for serving. We will provide training, coordination, and support throughout your volunteer time with us and ask that volunteers commit to serving for a minimum of one year.
Mirror Ministries strives to select long-term volunteers who embrace our ministry goals and objectives. This requires Directors and Long-Term Volunteers to be committed to:
The light of Jesus Christ is at the heart of Mirror Ministries. Therefore, the commitment of individuals with a personal, growing relationship with Christ is a must. Serving the Lord through Mirror Ministries should be only a part of a balanced Christian lifestyle.
As Christians, the Lord requires us to be a part of a local body of believers for spiritual growth, encouragement, worship, and accountability. Long-term volunteers must be members or equivalent in their local church.
As representatives of Mirror Ministries, volunteers serve as ambassadors of this ministry. Each one must implement their tasks with unquestionable integrity, knowing that their service reflects not only on the ministry, but also the name of Jesus Christ.
To minister effectively, individuals should embrace the Mirror Ministries Mission, sharing the belief that it is a privilege to serve the Lord in and through this ministry.
As a group of people dedicated to bringing love, hope and the Gospel of Jesus Christ to victims and survivors of human trafficking, individuals must function in a team setting. It is vital for all to respect the ministry leadership in place.
Individuals should possess strong interpersonal skills, be able to enjoy and rejoice in the success of others, as well as inspire and motivate others to serve the Lord together through Mirror Ministries. Survivors of complex trauma have many symptoms that add strain to interpersonal relationships. Volunteers working directly with clients must be committed, consistent, and caring, and able to support individuals of diverse backgrounds, ideologies, and faiths.
The gift of shepherding (caring for others) churches, groups, and individuals who participate in Mirror Ministries is essential to the success of this ministry. Team members and leaders should remain open and sensitive to the spiritual needs of other volunteers and participants, praying with and building up the Body of Christ as they serve the Lord through Mirror Ministries.
The Body of Christ
Mirror Ministries is a para-church organization, and we work with and serve Christians from churches around the Tri-Cities and the nation. We must be willing to work with Christians and churches of all traditions, denominations and ethnicities. Mirror Ministries is committed to empowering the entire body of Christ.
The optional demographic information is only used for informational purposes. We like to know the diversity of our volunteer team and some grant applications request the same information. You do not have to provide this information and in no way will it affect your opportunity to volunteer.
I understand that I am a volunteer and not an employee of MIrror Ministries and that I am responsible for my own medical insurance. I assume all risks associated with performing my volunteer duties and release and hold Mirror Ministries harmless from any claims, liability, or other damages arising from my association and activities with Mirror Ministries.
Understanding Mirror Ministries’ need for new and ongoing promotion of Mirror Ministries, I will allow Mirror Ministries to use any Mirror Ministries-related photographs, films, other media, statements, or testimonials made by me or that include me. I waive any rights related to the above-mentioned.
Expenses I incur related to my Mirror Ministries volunteer duties may be reimbursable. If they are approved expenses, I understand that it is my responsibility to turn in receipts in a timely manner to the appropriate person for each expense.
I understand and agree that either Mirror Ministries or I may terminate this Agreement at any time for any or no reason.
Respecting the privacy of our clients, donors, members, staff, volunteers, and of Mirror Ministries itself is a basic value of Mirror Ministries. Personal and financial information is confidential and should not be disclosed or discussed with anyone without permission or authorization from the Executive Director. Care shall also be taken to ensure that unauthorized individuals do not overhear any discussion of confidential information and that documents containing confidential information are not left in the open or inadvertently shared.
Employees, volunteers, and board members of Mirror Ministries may be exposed to information that is confidential and/or privileged, and proprietary in nature. It is the policy of Mirror Ministries that such information must be kept confidential both during and after employment or volunteer service. Staff and volunteers, including board members, are expected to return materials containing privileged or confidential information at the time of separation from employment or expiration of service.
Our client confidentiality is of the utmost importance for their safety, protecting the integrity of any criminal charges and our clients’ dignity. Their stories are THEIR stories; do not take away that ownership. Clients must sign a Release of Confidential Information (which they can revoke at any time) for any of their information to be shared except what is required by law.
Mirror Ministries’ employees and volunteers are required by law to report any information regarding abuse and/or neglect of minor children or vulnerable adults to Child Protective Services or Adult Protective Services as directed by RCW 26.44.030.
Mirror Ministries’ employees and volunteers are required by law to reveal any information necessary to establish safety if there is reason to believe that a client is in imminent danger of harming themselves or another person, as directed by RCW 5.60.060.
We will communicate that legal responsibility to our clients before they share their stories whenever possible. In the event that we are required by law to reveal client information, Mirror Ministries will make every effort to advise our clients of the release of information. Any information released will be the minimum necessary to fulfill the legal requirements.
Unauthorized disclosure of confidential or privileged information is a serious violation of this policy and will subject the person(s) who made the unauthorized disclosure to appropriate discipline, including removal/dismissal.
As part of this faith-based ministry, Mirror Ministries expects all volunteers to agree and abide by the following statement of faith. Please prayerfully consider.
