2017 SIGNATURE LEVEL SPONSORS
The OneVo!ceHome was established by a group of women with a passion to offer underage sex trafficking victims a safe home for restoration and the opportunity for a new beginning.
The shelter will offer counseling, physical development programs, spiritual support, and education. Equine therapy and organic gardening will allow them to work on something purposeful.
Earlier this year, OneVo!ceHome (OVH) had the opportunity to buy a ranch. They had hoped to raise $3.4 million through donors and grant funding to purchase the property. It was a big goal, and you responded in a HUGE way! R2R 2016 raised over $121,000-- double the amount raised in 2015.
Despite this amazing outpouring of support, OneVo!ceHome did not receive grant funding. Without being fully funded, OVH released the ranch to other buyers.
Proverbs 16:9 says, “The mind of man plans his way, But the LORD directs his steps.”
Accordingly, we are adjusting our plan and trusting the new direction. Even now, OneVo!ceHome is exploring other properties that could serve as its human trafficking shelter for child victims.
R2R 2017 helped raise operational costs
Operational Costs: Before we can apply for and receive victim services grant funding to offset the costs of operating the shelter, OVH must show two years of established operations at the shelter. This is why R2R is so important. To rescue and restore one girl for one year, OVH needs $64,000 to cover its operational costs. We need to raise $640,000 per year for ten girls.
OVH Property: We are in search of the safest property for these victims. Believe with us that the right location is secured soon. We will then look to obtain grant funding for necessary "bricks & mortar" in the 2017 cycle. We will knock on every door and will not rest until we secure all funding needed for the OVH.
Even though the shelter location must change, the need has not.
Every 30 seconds, someone becomes a victim of human trafficking. Since the fall of 2015, we’ve had over 125 victims present in Lubbock, most of who indicated they were trafficked as a child. In 2016, Voice of Hope reported 55 human trafficking victims with 24% being children. There are so few places for us to place young girls who need to recover from their trauma of being bought and sold for sex.
