The trafficking of human beings for sex is happening right here, in our communities, all around us, every day.

It is an industry that generates billions of dollars annually, and it exploits some of the most vulnerable people in our society.

Refuge for Women provides a safe place for women and girls who are victims of sex trafficking. And while this problem feels international in its scope, it is very much a local issue. In fact, it is happening in your community right now.

The truth is, we can make a difference.

We can create real change when we come together and raise our voices. We can fight back against the injustice of sex trafficking and help set these women free.

We believe there is reason to hope. We believe that every woman has worth and deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. We are committed to helping women find healing and freedom from their past.

Imagine a day when every woman is free from the fear of being bought and sold. When every woman can walk in the fullness of her God-given potential. This is the future we are fighting for.

Join us in the fight to end prostitution, one woman at a time!
