About Everyday Aftercare Child Sponsorship
When a young girl is rescued from her traffickers, she begins a difficult journey toward restoration that will require the resources of a caring community. In the next two years, she will meet approximately 30 adults who are equipped to help her on her journey. This includes the medical professionals who will guide her toward physical health, the prosecuting attorney who is responsible for the case against her trafficker, her own attorney who will guide her through the court process, the counselor who will attend to her emotional health, the case workers who walk beside her, the house moms who will help her navigate daily life, teachers for her education, security staff who will always be present, administrative staff who help keep the doors open, and many others. More about our aftercare program.
$45 PROVIDES ONE DAY OF CARE FOR ONE RESIDENT.
It takes nearly $1,200 per month to cover the basic needs of a trafficking survivor -- her housing, food, education, basic healthcare, and core program components included. Unlike traditional sponsorships, which partner one child to one sponsor, the expense of a trafficking survivor requires the partnership of more than 30 sponsors who are willing to support her present and future.
requirements for child sponsorship:
1. Give Monthly: Sign up as a monthly donor giving $45/month and write “Sarah’s House Child Sponsorship” in the memo.
2. Read Her Blog: Once you sign up as a sponsor, we will send you a packet of information along with an emailed password and link to read the sponsored child’s blog. Each resident's blog includes photos and a report on her progress so that you can read about the life-giving impact of your sponsorship.
3. Send Letters: A few times a year, we will reach out to you with an opportunity to write a letter to the girl who you sponsor. Instructions will be sent via email. This is not required, but will help foster a relationship with the girl at Sarah's House.
4. Pray: Be an active part of her journey to restoration by praying for her and hoping for her. You are her advocate, and she needs you!
*In accordance with our Child Protection Policy, Communication/Media Policy, and World Wide Best Standards and Practices, the actual identity of each child will not be disclosed and direct communication to and from a child is facilitated through a child's social worker via the blog.
