What is Ransomed Life?
“Ransomed Life exists to care for survivors, victims, and the ‘at-risk’ of commercial sexual exploitation of minors. Our vision is to see every exploited youth redeemed and restored. The abuse has taken place in the context of relationships and we believe that healing will also come from relationships and we believe that healing will also come from relationships. Each bond formed between the girl and our volunteers are mutually transforming. Not only is it impacting the lives of the girls, but also the lives of each volunteer. We accomplish restoration through: Mentoring, Counseling, and Community Engagement.” You can learn more about Ransomed Life by visiting their website.
