Isaiah 61:1 The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me...He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from the darkness for the prisoners.
Restore Innocence exists to aid victims of human trafficking in the rescue, restoration and reintegration process by addressing their physical, emotional and spiritual needs.
Restore Innocence was founded as a faith-based 501c3 in 2010 out of a desire to see young women in the United States provided with holistic aftercare in the wake of trafficking. From the outset we formed invaluable and trusted relationships with law enforcement and gleaned from their experiences, which helped us to define the most pressing needs for survivors.
We found that even though awareness around this crime was slowly growing, and increased numbers of young people were being recovered each year, the bridge back to emotional, physical and relational wholeness was extremely difficult to locate and to cross.
From that point until today we have dedicated ourselves to understanding and entering into the recovery journey for young survivors, supporting their rescue with our Restoration Bags, and contributing toward their restoration and reintegration through our Mentor Program.
In the past seven years we have mentored nearly 40 young women in transformational relationships, and have provided 25oo Restoration Bags for victims across 45 states. We are humbled to serve the Lord and these courageous overcomers, and our desire is to honor Him always!
