Our approach to human trafficking prevention is to pair young women with caring mentors who saturate them with a message of self-worth and hope. These interactions occur weekly after school at our Adorned In Grace Design Studios.

We have a variety of Design Studio support roles that are suitable for those who don't have as much time to give as our regular volunteers, but still want to make a difference! These roles are one-time commitments or more, depending upon volunteer availability:

1.) Teacher: Teach a life skill such as dance, business, drama, computer science, photography, music, cooking, exercise, etc.

2.) Seamstress: Help the girls with their sewing projects, either one-on-one or a couple at a time, encouraging them to develop their own ideas and creativity.

3.) Driver (crucial need!): Pick up girls at school or home and bring to Design Studio. Stay for the workshop or return at the end to bring girls home.

4.) Snacks: Bring homemade or purchased snacks or meals weekly or bi-weekly. Stay for the workshop or drop off snacks. Snacks can be dropped off ahead of time.

5.) Inventory Management: Organize and keep track of supplies at the Design Studio. Let the Design Studio Coordinator know when supplies need to be replenished.

6.) Cleaning/Landscaping: Help keep the facility looking great so it continues to be a peaceful place for the girls to hang out. Tidy up the yard. Spread bark, pull weeds, plant flowers. Build a raised garden bed for the girls to plant vegetables.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to bring churches together to serve their neighborhoods. We do this through free health clinics for the underinsured and noninsured, anti trafficking efforts, and more. Our vision is to see churches and individuals everywhere choosing unity over division and compassion over complacency.

Description

The brokenness and division in the world is too big for just one church, organization, or person to handle. We believe neighborhoods suffer when churches compete and passionate people don't have an outlet to serve, so we create tools that invite people to put their faith in action and unite churches to address their neighborhood's issues together.

We understand how it feels to see the suffering in your neighborhood and not know what to do about it-and to not know how your own talents and time could help alleviate that suffering. For the past ten years we have been mobilizing people of faith to serve together in their own backyards using proven models of service that have helped bring physical and spiritual healing to thousands of broken people.

Too often indecision, fear, and apathy cause us not to act. Too often, misunderstandings and disagreements cause the people of God’s Church not to work together to reach the broken and bring hope to a hurting world. If we let these barriers prevent us from doing anything, we miss out on the incredible things God is waiting to do in and through us. You may believe that you can’t do anything to address the problems in your neighborhood. But we want you to know that you can do this. And we want to help you get there.
