­­Church Engagement

The Institute for Shelter Care is a national Christian ministry that aspires to see the Church be the leader in qualified, compassionate care for victims of exploitation.

We provide direct support to those who are already in ministry with survivors, including those in your community. We also create pathways for more of God’s people to become equipped and engaged in the work.

Jaco Booyens, founder of Jaco Booyens Ministries and the CEO of After Eden Pictures and supporter of the Institute for Shelter Care, implores churches to take action.
