We are a powerful team of solid women in recovery and survivors of the commerical sex trade working to help others find freedom from exploitation and addiction and start their healing journey.
We provide services to assist with exiting the cycles of prostitution and drug addiction. We strive to reach as many victims as possible to show they aren’t alone and that it is never too late. There is always hope.
Our goal is to bring awareness by speaking at events and providing 8-10-week Recovery Support Groups to empower women and help them “self-identify.” Once they know and recognize that they are no longer victims of sex trafficking and that they are, instead, survivors, the healing can begin. At that point, we come alongside and mentor/support them as they continue on the journey of healing and starting a new life.
Many addicts and victims of sex trafficking are victims of unimaginable circumstances, and sometimes it just takes one decision to turn into years of heartache. Even though those choices cannot be undone, nobody deserves to suffer a lifetime of loneliness or fear. We are here to guide you and walk alongside you step by step.
You are not alone.

because the Lord has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners,
and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,
and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
instead of ashes,
instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the Lord
for the display of his splendor.
