Overview

The numbers are shocking. While it is impossible to know exactly how many of our children are being sold for sex, according to the U.S. Department of State, more than 300,000 youth are at risk for trafficking into the sex industry in the United States annually. The average age a child is first exploited through prostitution is 13 years old.

Young girls are twice made victims by a broken system. Raped and abused by pimps and johns, these children then face arrest and criminalization for prostitution while their abusers walk away with a slap on the wrist.

The situation

Severe lack of resources. There are less than 400 beds nationwide committed exclusively to meeting the needs of these traumatized children after their rescue. Often, there is nowhere for them to go.

The Solution

Overview

Redemption Ridge is dedicated to bringing hope and healing to young girls rescued from the horrendous world of sex trafficking. We are committed to redeeming lives, restoring dignity and placing purpose in the hearts of these precious children.

  • Efforts are underway to establish a home; a safe house that will provide freedom and security in an undisclosed location so perpetrators cannot find the girls. Our goal is to provide a home where healing, restoration, and spiritual redemption can occur in a safe and healthy environment.
  • Opportunity will be given for each girl to develop a Plan of Redemption (POR). This plan will address her emotional, physical, educational and spiritual needs. Our desire is to offer a successful pathway to independent, self-sufficient living for the young women at Redemption Ridge.
  • Redemption Ridge will offer an array of activities specifically designed to nurture the mind and body in a healthy, therapeutic way. These include equine therapy, art, music and dance classes, gardening, physical fitness and educational courses of special interest.

As you visit this site you will find a Resources page where you can become educated about the issue of child sex trafficking. We also have links to our Facebook page with news articles about trafficking in and around Oregon. Visit our Get Involved tab to learn how you can partner with Redemption Ridge. Join a Movement of compassion to establish a home of healing for young victims of sexual exploitation.
