Only 1% of trafficking victims are ever able to leave the sex trade. Of that, 80% are often forced to return to the trafficker because there is no place for them to go. We aim to fill that need by providing a safe home for those who leave the life.
Libertas Home was founded by a group of people in Northern Virginia dedicated to the proposition that no one is free while anyone is enslaved. We believe that the love of God reaches everyone, and we desire to reflect that love.
Libertas Home was founded to meet the need of more room for those who desire to leave the sex trade. We are committed to listening to survivors, and as such, place a high priority on engaging staff who themselves have had that experience.
We are a Christian ministry that offers aid to minor survivors of the sex trade. Our faith informs our efforts by walking in compassion with those who are suffering, by unconditionally sharing the love that Christ has poured out on us, and by believing that it is better to give than to receive. We do not require a profession of faith from survivors, but instead provide a loving environment without judgment.
Our mission is to see the eradication of sex trafficking in the DMV area.
Everyone has been through some sort of difficulty or trauma in life. We come together in the realization that what has happened to survivors is more than we could ever imagine, and we support them in their healing and growth.
We desire to aid our community to see the signs of trafficking in order to prevent more evil. We believe that our children are the future and they are precious. We strive to support our community in growing in knowledge and compassion as we work together to eradicate this evil.
We work together with other organizations in order to ensure that no one slips through the cracks and in order to provide the best service possible to survivors.
We believe that true religion does not consist in pious words, but in loving deeds that come from faith and are empowered by grace. We believe that our own love overflows from Christ and his sacrifice for us. We therefore attempt to demonstrate that love to others, and especially to those who are oppressed and in danger.
