We hear about it on the nightly news and in special interest stories from around the world, but it occurs daily in communities all around us. Every year, thousands of young women are forced into sexual exploitation. Most are under the age of 18. And what happens when they turn 18? Who is there to help? The damage this causes to their emotions and souls is immeasurable, but they are not without hope.

What does S.T.A.A.R. (Stop The Abuse And Rescue) Ministry do?

S.T.A.A.R. is a confidential ministry primarily focused on the practical care and mentoring of victims of abuse, sexual exploitation and human trafficking. We are not a replacement for professional, legal, or medical counseling.

S.T.A.A.R. is a complete wrap around service that locates or offers housing, medical, dental, legal services, and more. Housing will be a safe and structured environment that promotes healing. S.T.A.A.R. staff works closely with law enforcement to provide a bridge of communications between the victim/survivor and law enforcement.

S.T.A.A.R. mentors are Christians who are willing to talk about all issues, but never force subjects victims are not ready to discuss.

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free, --Luke 4:18
Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. 10 If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. --Ecclesiastes 4:9-10
