Restoration Home for Survivor Youth
Victims of sex trafficking have experienced complex trauma over long periods of months or years. To heal effectively and re-enter society in healthy and beneficial ways, these survivors need a safe environment - away from the toxicity and exploitation they have been living in - with wrap-around services for holistic restoration.
Since the beginning, Mirror Ministries has had a vision of building and opening a home for local and regional survivors of sex trafficking. Through our drop-in Outreach Center, we have helped survivors leave exploitation, start new jobs, get back to school or start college.
Imagine how much more we could accomplish with the intensive, wraparound residential care these survivors need to thrive long-term. A pastoral and serene-feeling property, away from things that trigger painful memories, will give these young girls a feeling of safety. A home where young victims can come to feel safe and cherished, learn to trust, begin to heal, and become victors over the horrific trauma they have endured.
Now we are on the cusp of making this vision a reality. Learn more about this project and how you can help local youth rise above their horrific circumstances to grasp a future of hope.
Based on years of research, visits with other restoration homes across the country, and study of most promising practices, we have prayerfully developed this list of needs for the location of the restoration home.
Beginning with a home for six girls, we plan to eventually add two more houses on the same property to care for 6 girls each.
Based on studies and most promising practices, our wraparound therapeutic programming will provide survivors with the best chance of restoration.
Safety is one of our key values - for our clients, staff, and neighbors. Our safety plans, based on our research of similar homes nationwide and most promising practices, minimize risk and improve healing at our restoration home.
