Who We Are
We are Fighting for freedom
Our mission is to end child sex slavery.
We are a nonprofit organization on a mission to eliminate the sexual exploitation and trafficking of children in Tennessee and provide safe environments to foster hope and healing through Jesus Christ.

These numbers may get your attention; however, they don’t tell the full story.
Modern-day slavery is a dark and hidden act, an act that often goes undetected and unreported.
The statistics available are based only on cases that have been identified and reported.
BELIEFS + VALUES
We are followers of Jesus Christ and express the Biblical mandate to care for the broken, the oppressed and the orphan.
It is the responsibility of the church and all believers to speak up and fight for those who cannot do so for themselves.
All children are significantly valued and loved by God, and Jesus Christ is the only One who can heal and restore.
The source and demand, pornography and sex addiction, must be eliminated to see an end to child sexual exploitation.
The fight against DMST begins with bringing awareness to the issue within our churches, community, and schools.
Because of this, we work to equip them with tools to prevent the commercial sexual exploitation of children.
Children must be provided a safe place in order to heal and find hope again.
