What is Human Trafficking?

Human trafficking, also known as trafficking in persons or modern-day slavery, is a crime that involves compelling or coercing a person to provide labor or services, or to engage in commercial sex acts.  The coercion can be subtle or overt, physical or psychological.  Exploitation of a minor for commercial sex is human trafficking, regardless of whether any form of force, fraud, or coercion was used.

When a child is rescued, that child is likely going home or somewhere that is not equipped to handle the aftermath of the complex trauma that occurs with trafficking. This can lead to a rescued survivor missing school, needed therapy appointments and ultimately falling through the cracks and failing to thrive.

What’s the Solution?

Our Mission is to provide a long term safe house for minors who have been sex trafficked where they can receive the comprehensive care necessary to heal and thrive in life after rescue.

Our Action Plan:

What is the Mission Ranch Program?

Mission Ranch is a long term safe house where child survivors of human trafficking will have the opportunity to heal and find their identity. This safehouse will serve girls ages 12-17 with trauma-informed, victim-centered care anywhere from 6 months to 2 years depending their individual plan of care. The circle of care will include Medical, Educational, Therapy, Spiritual, and Life Skills all provided at Mission Ranch. The heart of Prism Project is to provide a safe place where child survivors of human trafficking can come to heal from this complex trauma, on their time, with a loving team of professionally trained care providers. 

Mission Ranch Completion

How far are we into our Goal of a Full Time Rescue Shelter:

Construction and Renovations – 90%

Licensing with the State of Michigan will be completed once all required construction and inspections are finished.

Where are we Now?

With donor, community partner, and grant support we are incredibly excited to be opening doors of Mission Ranch this spring 2022 pending state inspections and licensing. We are still needing to raise funds to have 3 months of operating expenses and salaries before opening doors.
