Our mission is to bring hope to vulnerable children who have suffered domestic sexual abuse.  We help meet the needs of the abused child by providing  financial assistance and resources for investigations and legal expenses.  Our goal is to help bring justice for abused children to ensure they are protected from any further abuse so they can heal.

"To be the hands and feet of Jesus to bind up the brokenhearted and to set the captives free."

Isaiah 61:1

"I believe the Lord called me to help children, forced into silence by their sexual abuser, to break out of the bondage of domestic sexual abuse, so they can find healing, hope and freedom, to be able to live a  normal life. "


Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" And I said, "Here am I. Send me!"​

Isaiah 6:8

So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
