At the end of September, we reached $1.3 Million towards our goal of $1.5 Million to build a therapeutic treatment center for girls 12-17.
From Bobbi Starr, Executive Director of Micah's Promise :
Dear Freedom Fighters,
I am excited about the updates and progress I have to share with you! The Lord has been moving in mighty ways and bringing strategic advocates who have helped us reach $1.3 Million of the $1.5 Million dollars we need to break ground on our therapeutic treatment facility!! Once we complete our Capital Campaign, we expect to be providing care to child survivors within a year. This is the most exciting time in my 10 year journey of studying and fighting the issue of DMST. Micah’s Promise is actively engaging at the state level with the Georgia Statewide Human Trafficking Task Force as well as continuing to provide evidenced based, trauma informed trainings to our community.
Along with our encouragement and excitement is also the hard reality that the need for this therapeutic treatment center is only growing greater by the day. Already this year, over 1,000 children in Georgia, have been identified as victims of Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking. I know these numbers make this issue seem daunting, but I also know the power of one person’s persistence and the change that is possible when caring people engage and work together for the good of the most vulnerable and worthy amongst us…our children.
We have many exciting events on the horizon and will be hosting an “On the Table” event at 8:30 am on October 22nd at Christ Community Church and would love to see you and would appreciate you sharing with friends, family and colleagues about our work.
In closing I pray that each of you remain blessed, protected, and especially encouraged that you have played a role in the advancement of our mission to see the Restoration of Stolen Childhoods.
So do not throw away your confidence (hope); it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what He has promised.
WE PRESS ON!!!!
