Praying across America

In May we are praying for women who are mothers and find themselves in shelters seeking refuge from exploitation. 

A new picture of possibilities

Be encouraged! In spite of all that is going on in the world, God is creating something new.


Target giving directly to shelters through our Legacy Fund

Invest today and put your donation toward increasing the number of shelters across America and strengthening existing shelters to meet the needs of trafficking victims.

Our vision is that any survivor—anywhere in the nation—would have access to qualified, compassionate care.

There are very few organizations that provide the need that the Institute for Shelter Care provides. Their “model” of doing should be replicated 10,000 times over because the need is that great; & what they provide meets that need.
