Purpose and History

Purpose

Sarah’s Home is a residential home near Colorado Springs, Colorado, that works with girls ages 12 up to 18 who have been rescued from sex trafficking. Our home also includes a fully accredited, on-site private school, so they can catch up on crucial education they have missed.

History

Sarah’s Home was the vision of the Rocky Mountain District Women’s ministries who, for twenty years, had taken mission trips all over the world. They had witnessed child sex trafficking in most of the countries they visited, and were extremely heartbroken when they realized the commercial sexual exploitation of minors also happens right here in the United States.

 

Although there are an estimated 100,000-300,000 minors trafficked in the United States annually, there are only about 300 spaces available for victims (minors and adults) who are rescued. Determined to increase the number of spaces available, the group was able to get a church donated and converted it into a five bedroom house. In 2013, they partnered with a local child placement agency and started receiving girls in the foster care system who had been victims of sex trafficking. In August of 2017 Sarah's Home received a new license from the State in order to serve more girls and let them have the opportunity to stay for longer periods of time if they need to. Sarah's Home doors are open to love, serve and empower girls who have experienced sex trafficking.
