It’s Not Just Someplace Else…
It’s Right Here!
Over the past two years, our hearts have been broken time and time again as we researched the horrors behind this desperate need. This topic is not often discussed in polite company, but the Lord has clearly called us to the front lines.
Straight Street is working with area ministries and agencies to provide community awareness and support for victims. The services and support will assist those in the Roanoke Valley and across the state of Virginia.
This new arm of ministry is called . The need and our response is so specialized, we felt it was best to create a separate ministry identity.
Through much prayer, the name was chosen. The hope for these victims is in Christ; HE is their RANSOM. Our verse for the ministry is Matthew 20:28, “just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
We are grateful for the guidance, information and support from local, state and federal law enforcement agencies. The training that Straight Street is receiving is from Wellspring Living, a ministry in Georgia that has served victims for over a decade. Wellspring Living is providing the training and the direction needed to open and operate a shelter for human trafficking victims.
We need your partnership as we pray, plan and continue to develop .
