A Place of Refuge

In 2017, WP Parent Partnership participants have become volunteers, speakers and mentors in the community. Our Restoration Department has grown to five staff members due to our impact in the Valley. Just His House hosted survivors or their parents every week of 2017.

Let the words of those who are being blessed by your investment in this ministry tell you what has happened here this year:

“JHH means I can have a safe place to come to and relax, I can talk to people here that will help me. It feels like my second home.” … WP Survivor

“I have a lot of navigators at JHH that I know care about me, they are not caring about me because they have to, they care because they want to and they want to see me strive, it makes me feel loved and cared for.” … WP Survivor

“I struggled with accepting Jesus in my life. Now I have a sense of comfort when I pray and I know Jesus is listening to me and he cares. I’m glad WP has helped me get my faith back.” … WP Survivor

“I am profoundly grateful for Parent Night at Just His House. A place of comfort where I renew my strength, wisdom, guidance from staff and other parents who have been affected by this evil called ‘human trafficking’. In the midst of my deepest darkness this place has been my light and compass. It guides me through this darkness and gives me the light of hope when my daughter is recovered.” … Survivor Parent Sheri

“He will cover you with his feathers and under his wings you will find refuge” Psalm 91:4

Prevention Awareness Training

In campuses all over Modesto, we are bringing sex trafficking prevention education to your students. More than 800 students have already been resourced this 2017 school year and we will continue to reach more kids in 2018. Presentations are led by a Survivor Leader, who was trafficked in Modesto and shares parts of her own story. Read some of the results of WP’s partnership with Modesto City Schools:

I learned a lot about sex trafficking and how it’s very common here in Modesto and other cities near Highway 99. I really felt touched with your story and I have already told many people about what I learned.” … Downey High 9th grader

I know a family friend who went through it and it was terrible. I hope soon it will stop forever.” … Modesto High 9th grader

“I now know to be careful and remember we are pricelessI will do my best to protect myself and others”  … Davis High 10th grader

“I feel like Without Permission should be speaking to whole schools not just classrooms”… Davis High 12th grader

It was amazing and touching (the presentation). I understand that I’m just one person but can make a world of difference. Thank you so much for sharing with us.” … Enochs High 9th grader

“How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God! And the children of men take refuge in the shadow of Your wings.”
Psalm 36:7
