Our vision is to serve God through serving the needy children of Mexico – children who come to us from broken homes or from no home at all, who have learned to make a life for themselves on the streets. Through City of Refuge children’s home we are able to provide a loving family environment for children who have seen and experienced abuse, neglect and extreme poverty. Our family currently consists of about 70 children and 20 “parents,” otherwise known as staff members, who work together to meet not only the physical needs of the children, but their emotional and spiritual needs as well.
When people hear the term “human trafficking,” they often think of an overseas, far away problem. But the truth is, it’s not just a problem somewhere else. Human trafficking occurs every day right in our community, our neighborhoods, our churches and our blind-spots. We can no longer be certain that our communities are safe. But, how do you enact change? You may find yourself wondering how a single person or family can make a dent in such a major problem.
