Ark of Hope for Children has a plan to provide safe homes in north central Florida for young women and men rescued from child trafficking. It will take all of us to bring it to reality. Help us transform darkness to Hope!
The U.S. Government says the most critical need for victims rescued from child trafficking is adequate housing. Most foster homes can’t meet the needs of child victims forced to rent their bodies out 10 times a day.
We proudly present Harbourage, our safe harbor community designed specifically around the needs of rescued child sex trafficking victims. Our care givers will act as independent guardians that provide therapeutic daily support, unconditional love, guidance and care to rescued girls AND boys. Harbourage safe homes for rescued child trafficking victims have been designed as a self sustaining, environmentally sound and energy efficient facility.
The design incorporates;
· A system of housing units allowing up to six survivors to live together with two house parents, per unit
· Housing units provide for family structure, with privacy allowing for personal reflection and growth
· They are informal in design to encourage residents to feel at home, safe and comfortable
· Additional general purpose facilities will be used for study, training and recreation
The sustainable design makes considerations for sun, shading, wind and water for climate control. Our wonderfully designed Harbourage community has been rendered artistically. Now we need partners to help it take the next steps toward reality.
Check the horrifying U.S. and international child trafficking statistics. Human trafficking is the world’s 2nd largest industry with over 20 million victims! Its estimated that 50+% are children? The news rings daily with new human trafficking horror stories.
We have researched what the needs of rescued victims of child trafficking are. We need you to help us do something about it! Ark of Hope meets the emotional needs of severe child abuse and child trafficking victims worldwide through our live chat, abuse victim support site Removing Chains.org. This keeps them hanging on to hope for a trauma free tomorrow.
