We need YOU!

 

We know that women and girls who have been sexually exploited need to understand their value and worth and learn to have a healthy view of relationships.
 
In order to do that, they need a community of support that will walk alongside them as they rebuild their lives. We believe every girl and woman deserves to be offered the chance to rebuild her life rather than be bought and sold.
 
Since 2012, we’ve served over 500 women who have been exploited here in Fort Worth.
 
As we meet ladies where they’re at and surround them with community, we have seen dozens of women completely escape and recover from the sex industry and exploitation!
 
You can either become an
ADVOCATE or an INFLUENCER.

We also host a monthly dinner at the Esther House to encourage and spend time with those women. We have a dessert night at Salvation Army where many of the ladies live.
