Street Ransom is a nonprofit organization in Roanoke, VA that exists to help young people avoid common traps of sexual exploitation and to provide a shelter for those who have been rescued from sex trafficking. We work in partnership with local, state, and federal agencies to address this growing challenge through both education and restoration services.


To prevent juveniles from becoming victims of exploitation and trafficking, while seeing survivors reintegrate into society as whole individuals.


To educate the community about sexual exploitation of children and domestic sex trafficking; to provide emergency shelter and services to help juvenile victims find healing and restoration through Jesus.
