Restored Hope Ministries gives sex trafficked and sexually exploited women and children a sense of HOPE! The lives these women and children live while captive by a pimp, club owner, family member or boyfriend offers no HOPE at all. They live and function in a constant state of HOPELESSNESS!
Restored Hope Ministries is a long term safe-house program for women ages 17-45 who have been victims of sex trafficking and sexual exploitation.
At this time we are unable to house pregnant women or women with children in the first two phases. However, we do find placement for the children when needed. Our apartment complex is used for our phase three program and this is when children are able to come join mom in her new healthy and whole state.
The Restore Hope Ministries Program involves turning away from the life you are living right now and because of that there are prerequisites.
For your safety, and during your stay in the program, cell phones, computer access, males, sex, drugs/alcohol, smoking and social media access, will not be allowed. There will be limited access to visitation from family or friends. Your family will be able to send letters to you after your orientation at the Pastors discretion. Once you have completed the required restoration phase of the program, you will have access to a cell phone and computer for job preparation.

18 to 24 Month Live In Program
The Restored Hope Ministries' 18 to 24 month program consists of housing, food, and most basic necessities required for their protection and security. The program is divided into two phases: Restoration and Empowerment.
The first 12-15 months is the restoration phase. The program participant is removed from their adverse situation and expected to stay disconnected from this past environment so that the program participant can be restored. Once restored, the program participant enters the second phase of the program: empowerment.
In the empowerment phase, the program participant is helped to find employment while continuing to have her housing, food, and most basic necessities paid for her by the program. This phase gives the program participant time to build some financial foundation before going back out on her own. After her graduation, the graduate has the option to transition into a fully furnished 1 bedroom apartment.
