We will encounter children who have been extorted through sex trafficking and exploitation but, through Christ’s love, we will provide them an avenue to find restoration. Along with victim services, we will work to raise awareness and provide education and advocacy in the hope of ending human sex trafficking throughout Indiana.
Restored’s hope is to provide services, outreach, and education to young girls between the ages of 11-24 whom have been victimized by domestic sex trafficking and sexual exploitation. Restored will combat cultural trends and ignorance that continue to let human trafficking become more prevalent and readily used within the American culture. We believe that restoration comes from Christ alone who gives freely, that’s why our heartbeat is found in Isaiah 55:1.
Restored Inc. serves victims of sex trafficking in Indiana through active recovery, compassionate relief, and the hope of restoration.
