"We have been involved with CF for about 12 years now. The humble way they work and the delicate care they take for everyone in their care is incredible. Also, the staff behind CF are some of the most beautiful people I know. Being around them and the love that flows through them constantly makes me want to be a better person! Our hearts will forever be with Compassion First!"

“The light shines in the darkness and the darkness can never extinguish it.” John 1:5. CF embodies this, bringing the light of Christ to the darkest places. The stories of hope and transformation continue to be like embers carried in a breeze, igniting flames near and far. We are honored they have invited us to be part of the story."

“One of the phrases used by Compassion First, “For the One” beautifully describes their ministry. No life is too small; each person receives kind and personalized care as they recover from the trauma of being trafficked. It’s a privilege for me to be associated with Compassion First and I am deeply moved by the work and how they do it.”

"We didn't really understand what Christlike compassion and love were before we met Compassion First. Our mindset and heart for the hurting has completely changed. This organization is authentic, full of integrity, and desires to follow after the heart of God...His heart is for the broken-hearted. They are doing amazing work in Indonesia!"

“The work of Compassion First is a remarkable resemblance to the redemptive work of Christ. CF gave me a profound understanding of what Jesus is doing for me, for all mankind.”

"I am very grateful to be part of this service, thank you for making me an extension of every support you provide both materially and spiritually. Thank you for your heart that wants to share with us and the girls. May the Lord Jesus abundantly bless you and your families."

“Thank you to the donors who wanted to help us here. Thank you for wanting to help us with a pure heart, not expecting anything in return from us.”

“It’s rare to find an organization that treats every one of its donors like family, but this is what CF does. I constantly think, “That’s what it looks like to be the hands and feet of Jesus.” CF does an exceptional job of loving people well, and they continue to motivate me to let that same light and love radiate from my own life.”

We prevent trafficking through community development and transit monitoring. Community centers offer holistic support, including scholarships, entrepreneurship, and events. Transit monitoring involves embedding staff in ports to intercept girls before they are trafficked.

Survivor Care

We provide personalized, trauma-informed care for girls who have been rescued from sex trafficking in secure 24-7 residential homes and through community-based care for those who have safe homes to return to.

Government Collaboration

We partner with local law enforcement, prosecutors, and governmental agencies toward case-managed investigation, intervention, and restoration. Our partnerships also include essential collaboration with Port police and authorities in transit monitoring.

For the One

Provide end-to-end, personalized care for each girl rescued from sex-trafficking in Indonesia.
