Real change is possible: We have experienced and witnessed this truth, and we offer it as a vision of hope to women trapped in the cycle of sexual exploitation, as well as to all in our community. Any step towards planting the seed of that vision or helping it bloom will be considered a “success” by our standards.
Power to change comes from God: The true power that frees women from the cycle of sexual exploitation comes from God. We are honored to participate in this work by exerting our best efforts and being good stewards of all the gifts that we have received.
The importance of invitation and personal choice: We share an honest and hopeful vision of healing, provide the path, and lend support along the road, but we cannot force someone to change. The journey of transformation depends on the individual’s choice, commitment and personal responsibility in that process.
Unconditional love and grace: We believe in the dignity and immense value of all people. We extend unconditional love to all, no matter how unlovely they may feel or how undervalued they may be in their current context.
Founded in the Christian tradition: We are grateful to our church partners who provide a strong foundation and principals to guide us and we celebrate the faith that motivates our volunteers and staff. There will never be a compulsory religious component to any of our programs and we welcome those of all backgrounds and faiths.
