The one / 1000 campaign is an opportunity for you to be a key part of raising the ongoing funds needed to continue to allow our US operations to grow as well as open and sustain Tennessee’s first safe house for girls ages 12-17 who have been rescued from a life of human trafficking. Our goal is to partner with 1000 donors who can help us restore these young ones who will come through the doors of Grace Oasis to a life filled with hope and opportunity.
Sadly, many girls, as they fall asleep at night, are forced to lay their heads on pillows bathed in hopelessness and heartache. Human trafficking is a problem that for far too long has been mislabeled, and even worse, swept under the rug. With more than 21 million people enslaved in the world today, the problem of human slavery has gotten worse, not better.
There is no official estimate of the total number of human trafficking victims in the U.S. The Polaris Project estimates that the total number of victims nationally reaches into the hundreds of thousands when estimates of both adults and minors and sex and labor trafficking are aggregated. Yet, in the USA, there are less than 2000 beds available in safe homes where intentional, specific care is given to survivors of human trafficking.
Our dream is the give these girls a space where their hearts can heal all while being wrapped up in the warm embrace of the love of Jesus Christ. With rooms ready, renovated, and waiting, we dream of seeing the living spaces of Grace Oasis enveloped in the sounds of girls enjoying a life of freedom. We dream of an oasis where the people these girls come in contact with want nothing for them but that they enjoy the life of a child rather than a slave. When this dream is fulfilled you will have been a part of opening the very first safe home of its kind in Tennessee for girls ages 12-17, who have come out of slavery.
Our aftercare recovery program will provide the counseling, therapy, education, and spiritual guidance these girls need to heal mentally, physically, socially, and spiritually. Almost all of the girls coming out of the trauma of slavery experience PTSD. Grace Oasis will provide round the clock care and encouragement for these young ladies as they pursue healing.
We are so close to accomplishing this dream! The rooms are ready, but there is still work to be done. This home can only become a reality through partners like you, who are passionate about seeing survivors fully restored. Together, we can make a life-changing impact. So, what will it take to fulfill this dream?
We are looking for 1000 people to donate a minimum of $50 a month towards the opening and sustaining of Grace Oasis: Tennessee. Your financial support of any amount, big or small, will change the lives of these girls forever. Everyone needs a safe place.
