Cleveland is in crisis. As gangs infiltrate our schools and neighborhood, the trafficking of minor (girls 12-19) is at an all-time high. Gracehaven case workers show trafficked girls a better life and a better way through the restorative love of Jesus Christ. Gracehaven needs to add 2 additional case managers at a cost of $60K each, in order to reach and rescue more trafficked girls. With this in mind, We created a 3 step process for the ministry. we are currently still developing step 1 and hope to reach step 3 as soon as the end of this year, but we can only accomplish this goal with help!

 

Step 1: Case Management Staff 

Focus: Works as Case Management with sex trafficked survivors, (30 girls/year), who are referred from the courts. Build a team of volunteer mentors; create a network of partners for wrap-around services for the girls; utilize YFC/Gracehaven/Columbus housing as needed or directed from the courts.

Ministry Cost: $60,000 per year, includes salary, benefits, mentoring budget, and program costs. 

Currently raised $25,000 in verbal commitments towards this goal.

 

Step 2: Prevention Education & Administrative Staff

Focus: Works as Human Trafficking Prevention Educator/trainer to 5,000 students in area high schools and middle schools. Works with Gracehaven Community Support Team to create awareness and training opportunities at churches and like-minded partners in Northern Ohio. Assists Case Management staff in the administrative details of serving 30 girls/year.

Ministry Cost: $60,000 per year, includes salary, benefits, mentoring budget, and program costs. 

 

Step 3: 2nd Case Management Staff

Focus: Works as Case Manager with sex trafficked survivors (additional 30 girls a year) who are reffered from the courts.

Ministry Costs: $60,000 per year, includes salary, benefits, mentoring budget, and program costs. 

 

We will launch Step 1 this September. The goal is to accomplish all 3 steps this year. This would open the door to education and prevention with youth before they are sex trafficked, but this would also allow us to reach countless survivors with the love and care that they truly need.
