As we prepare to open the doors of Lighthouse Sanctuary, we would like to share with you our mission and purpose and invite you to play a role in blessing young lives with freedom and hope.
Lighthouse Sanctuary exists to meet specific needs of children-survivors of human trafficking by providing a safe refuge for rehabilitation and eventual reintegration for children rescued from slavery. Our focus of support is with children survivors between the ages of 0-12 years old.
Each child who lives at Lighthouse Sanctuary will be evaluated and treated as an individual with personal needs. They will be assisted through the healing process: physically, emotionally and spiritually. Each child will be guided in their development with an emphasis on finding hope for the future. We will maximize our efforts by coordinating and partnering with other organizations that service the needs of children.
The primary objectives of Lighthouse Sanctuary are:
To provide a refuge from the abusive situation the children are living in.
To support the rehabilitation of body, mind, and spirit through an understanding of the healing powers of Jesus Christ.
To assist in reintegrating each child to an appropriate family with up to two years of family counseling to ensure success.
Lighthouse Sanctuary believes that everyone is a child of God and has the right to freedom and charge over their own body. We value education and allowing children to make choices for building their own future.
We believe that everyone deserves a voice and a sense of belonging. A family unit is the ideal place for every child. If a child cannot be reunited with their own family or placed in a loving home, Lighthouse Sanctuary will serve as that loving home and family.
We accept Christ as our greatest exemplar of charity, service and dedication to God. We will follow him in all our efforts in hopes of bringing glory to his name.
Lighthouse Sanctuary is a 501c3 organization. All donations are tax deductible and will be used for the housing and care of the children they shelter. Donations are gratefully accepted online at http://www.lighthousesanctuary.org/.
