THE STORY:

Help me support Gracehaven House which, when open, will provide a safe home, education, counseling, mentoring, and life skill training for women who are victims of domestic minor sex trafficking. According to the FBI northwest Ohio is one of the top recruiting locations for underage prostitution and it is estimated that 1,100 minors are currently being sexually exploited in Ohio. 

This is real, friends. It's happening right in our own backyards. On October 16, I am running the Columbus Half Marathon in an effort to support Gracehaven House and the young women it will impact, hopefully for the better. Help me support Gracehaven with any dontation you may be able to afford. Thank you for your consideration in this special project.

Sara :)

 

About Run for Gracehaven by Richard Basile

Run a marathon, change your world. Support Gracehaven House, change forever the world of a young woman.

We are a team of athletes running in the 2011 Columbus Marathon to raise awareness and support for Gracehaven House.

Our goal is to recruit 26+2 athletes to raise $26,200 for Gracehaven House.

Run a full, or run a half. Dare to run with us and make a difference.

About Gracehaven House

Gracehaven is a faith-based non-profit organization started in 2008 for the expressed purpose of providing shelter, security, and rehabilitation to girls under the age of 18 who are victims of commercial sexual exploitation in central Ohio.

Gracehaven is a long-term rehabilitation facility allowing girls to stay as needed until they reach the age of 18. We will then help them transition to the next step in their life. While at Gracehaven, the girls will be able to earn their GED, as well as receive counseling and treatment for the horrible trauma and exploitation they have been forced to endure.

Gracehaven is in the process of purchasing a house situated on 10 acres in an undisclosed location in NW Ohio. Once renovated, the house will be large enough to hold up to 10 girls at a time.

Mission Statement

Gracehaven seeks through Christian love to provide shelter and rehabilitation to girls under the age of 18 who have been victims of commercial sexual exploitation, and to raise awareness among young women about the issue of domestic minor sex trafficking (DMST) in order to educate and equip them so that they can avoid becoming victims themselves.
