Street Hope TN’s mission is to eliminate sexual exploitation and trafficking of children and provide safe environments to foster healing and hope through Jesus Christ.
We do this by:
- Bringing awareness and light to the dark issue of DMST to our churches and community.
- Mobilizing the church of Jesus Christ to engage in its elimination.
- Leading a community-wide men’s initiative to address the pornography/sex addiction source of demand that leads to child sexual exploitation.
- Providing safe environments for child victims of sex trafficking to heal.
- Providing a holistic, Christ-centered restorative approach: physically, spiritually, and emotionally; and restoring in them a true identity of who they are: loved, significant, and valuable to God.
- Partnering with other like-minded organizations. (Organizations focused on sex trafficking, working with children, or specializing in Christ-centered restoration.)
Street Hope TN envisions a day where all children are free from sex slavery and restored by Jesus Christ.
Our Core Values
- We are followers of Jesus Christ and embrace the Biblical mandate to care for the oppressed, orphan, broken, and hurting. (Isaiah 1:17)
- We believe children are significantly valued and loved by God. (Psalm 127:3, Matthew 19:14, Matthew 18:10)
- We believe that Jesus Christ is the only One who can heal and restore. (Psalm 147:3, Psalm 34:17-18)
- We believe that the source and demand (pornography, sex addiction) must be eliminated to see an end to child sexual exploitation.
- We believe that children must be provided a safe place in order to heal and find hope again.
- We believe that it is the responsibility of the church and all believers to speak and fight for those that cannot speak or fight for themselves.
- We believe that the fight against DMST begins with bringing awareness to the issue within our churches, schools, and community.
