Featured Partner: Kristy’s House

 

“We all have the need and the desire to be seen and to be known. When that is not done at all or in a healthy way, we fall prey to what the world tells us how to pursue that desire and what will provide it. A child doesn’t have to be in a foster home or have suffered terrible abuse to be vulnerable to exploitation. The victim may very well be from an affluent, two-parent home where work and materialism were more valued than interaction and emotional safety.”

~ Sarah Hurley, owner of Kristy’s House

 

 

Kristy’s House is a Christian Mentoring and Discipleship program for women involved in both trafficked and non-trafficked sex work and commercialized sexual exploitation. Ascent 121 holds our Aftercare programming at Kristy’s House.

Sarah wrote a very popular blog for Ascent 121 called Protecting Our Youth In A Highly Sexualized Culture. We encourage you to learn more about Kristy’s House. Many thanks, Sarah, for your partnership.
