Human Trafficking Ministry
Make a difference in a dark, hidden world.
"...Free those who are wrongly imprisoned; lighten the burden of those who work for you. Let the oppressed go free, and remove the chains that bind people." -- Isaiah 58:6
Human Trafficking is a hidden issue with a global scale. Nearly 30 million men, women, and children are trafficked worldwide, ranging from farm labor to sexual slavery. In the US alone, there are 275 reported trafficking cases every day. San Antonio is an important junction in the trafficking world and Grace Point aims to help be part of the solution. Join Grace Point and our ministry partners in the fight against Human Trafficking in our community and around the world.
Grace Point partners with the following organizations in combating human trafficking in San Antonio through financial and volunteer support.
Magdalena House is a transitional home in San Antonio that serves mothers and children who have fled dangerous and abusive lives by providing transformation through education, nurturing community, and programming. They rescue the least and the lost, sharing hope for a new beginning. Grace Point volunteers are encouraged to help collect tangible needed goods, coordinate bringing meals, provide childcare while moms attend enrichment classes and volunteer helpful services like teaching a skill/trade, helping maintain vehicles, etc. Financial contributions to Magdalena House are also encouraged as they are currently expanding to accommodate an additional 20 women and 40 children.

Ransomed Life supports domestic minor sex trafficking victims and exists to unconditionally love victims of sexual exploitation in the San Antonio area. They accomplish this through education, their mentor program, and restoration. Grace Point volunteers can engage as a mentor for a 12-17 year old youth. This includes helping ensure the youth has their academic, health and therapy needs met. Contact Susan Burkholder by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit ransomedlifetexas.org.
