Ashton's primary passion is empowering survivors of sex trafficking with resources and the freedom of healing.  From a young age, she loved reading. Books open the reader to a world that is not her own and it was through a book that she was introduced to sex trafficking. When she was about 13, she read a book that lightly touched on the subject and was shocked to find such a dark reality not only living on those pages, but existing in the world today. She began devouring books and following the work of anti-trafficking non-profits. God continued to intensify her passion for the topic and she eventually obtained her undergraduate degree in Social Work with a minor in Psychology and Bible.

Passion for Sarah's Home

God placed a love for working with broken teens and women in my heart. The Holy Spirit has enabled me to connect with the individuals in amazing ways. My heart sings as they are able to come to the realization that their brokenness does not define them, they have value, they have a future, and that God will restore and renew them as they come to know Him through a deep personal relationship.
