How & why we began

God has inspired a group of people, The Daughter Project family to love and serve children and women rescued from sex traffickers. We have been doing this wholeheartedly since 2009 - motivated by the words of Jesus Christ found in the Gospel of Matthew chapter 25: “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ Please prayerfully consider joining us. Thank you.

Recovery Home

In the summer of 2011, God inspired many, many people in northwest Ohio to help us build a recovery home for female, adolescent survivors of sex trafficking.  Within one year, a beautiful, $250,000 home was built, completely furnished and mortgage free.  God had taken our prayers and desire and led others to donate their time and talent to build a recovery home for young girls.

Our first girl arrived in the fall of 2012 and in the following five years, 15 adolescent girls began their life-long journey of recovery in our home.  The girls ranged in age from 12 to 17 years old.  In 2017, we ceased operating the home but we are actively investigating a more sustainable model for helping young girls and we are excited to see where God will lead us next!  As we explore other options, we continue to work with adult women rescued from sex trafficking and are always seeking awareness and advocacy opportunities.  Here is a list of some of our supporters.
