Did you know that the Daughter Project Girls Home is Kern County’s ONLY residential program for young survivors of human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation? We serve up to 10 girls at a time between the ages of 12 and 17 right here in our community… caring for their needs on multiple levels. These children deserve immediate comprehensive care, and that is what our team strives to provide 24 hours a day.
Human trafficking takes many forms, and, yes, our children are at risk.
'Human trafficking involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act. Every year, millions of men, women, and children are trafficked worldwide – including right here in the United States.’
Someone recently asked me how we measure success. Caring for children comes with a great deal of responsibility. The manner in which we measure success is not unlike how many of you do… an improved grade on a report card, a safe and healthy child, future thinking and goal setting, and the ability to thrive in a family setting.
After almost 6 years at our present location, we are very excited to transition our program to a semi-rural location with ample space to heal and grow.
Thank you for making this possible for young girls who are as precious to God as our own!
