A little about what we do.

Mission

To provide a safe and loving home to children previously trafficked in the sex trade, while meeting their physical, psychological, and educational needs.

Vision

To see every child that goes through our program leave with a sense of dignity and empowerment, knowing they are loved, valued and free to choose the trajectory of their future.

Values

Love, Respect, Authenticity, Trust and Compassion

Our goal...

...is to provide a safe place for underage survivors of human trafficking to heal, learn, and grow. 

We are the only facility in Costa Rica that offers full support—including counseling, education, and a family environment—to survivors. Our staff includes a full-time psychologist, teachers, directors, and house moms, all of whom act as trusted guides and confidants. In addition to traditional counseling and academics, we offer extra-curricular activities such as sewing, art therapy, equine therapy, yoga, gardening, music therapy, photography, cooking, and field trips. All of these activities nurture them on their path to healing.  By the time they finish the program, these girls are prepared to enter into society as capable young women. They pursue their dreams and never again need to use their bodies as a source of income.

What we fight...

  • Each year more then one million children around the world are forced into prostitution.

  • The average life span of a child in the sex industry is only 7 years after entering the trade.

  • An estimated 30,000 victims of Human Trafficking die each year from abuse, disease, torture, and neglect.

  • Eighty percent of those sold into sexual slavery are under 24, and some are as young as six years old.

  • Criminal organizations are increasingly attracted to human trafficking because, unlike drugs, humans can be sold repeatedly.
