The Refuge is an organization dedicated to the children survivors of sex trafficking, from the young ages of 11 to 17. Their mission is to provide a therapeutic home, a place that is safe for each individual to recover from the horror of the incident and grow with a positive mindset. A HOPE is placed in the Refuge’s atmosphere, for the broken-hearted and distressed. A LOVE is shown that everyone deserves to witness.
A strong value the Refuge has is trust in God’s healing love. Everyone that finds a home here experiences the healing and grace of God through caring individuals. Freedom is found from breaking free of the pain and suffering of captivity.
Fact: over 100,000 children born in the U.S. are trafficked every year within their own country. The average age of a girl to be set into the trafficking industry is 12. In EM’s home state of Texas alone there are roughly 47,000 children reported as missing each year.
THIS IS NOT GOOD. Greater awareness is key to bringing this tragedy down to a much lower rate. Spread the word and visit www.therefugeaustin.org. It’s so important that you participate, because change comes through group effort so please, please, please, see how you can help today!
