The one / 1000 campaign is an opportunity for you to be a key part of raising the ongoing funds needed to continue to allow our US operations to grow as well as sustain Tennessee's first safe house for girls ages 12-17 who have been rescued from a life of human trafficking. Our goal is to partner with 1000 donors who can help us restore these young ones who will come through the doors of Grace Oasis to a life filled with hope and opportunity.
Sadly, many girls, as they fall asleep at night, are forced to lay their heads on pillows bathed in hopelessness and heartache. Human trafficking is a problem that for far too long has been mislabeled, and even worse, swept under the rug. With more than 21 million people enslaved in the world today, the problem of human slavery has gotten worse, not better.
There is no official estimate of the total number of human trafficking victims in the U.S. The Polaris Project estimates that the total number of victims nationally reaches into the hundreds of thousands when estimates of both adults and minors and sex and labor trafficking are aggregated. Yet, in the USA, there are less than 2000 beds available in safe homes where intentional, specific care is given to survivors of human trafficking.
