Finding Grace Ministries is an abuse, neglect and exploitation of youth prevention agency. One of our programs is prevention education presentations in our communities. The second is our Youth Drop-in Center to provide youth with the means to beat the first 48 hours of exposure to exploitation. Youth will be able to come to the Center to take showers, wash their clothes, receive 2 meals on the days we are open, receive counseling services, to receive medical and Mental Health Services and also to receive life skills. We will offer education, and vocational assistance.
Help us, help children with donations of time, money and materials.
DID YOU KNOW?
1 out of 3 runaways are approached by a trafficker within the first 48 hours.
Survival sex is one of the most common forms of sexual abuse and exploitation.
Our vision is having a community that works together to recognize, assimilate and combat commercial sexual exploitation, abuse and neglect of children. We seek to restore and empower the lives of youth victimized and rescued by sexual abuse and exploitation by sharing the love and grace that God bestowed on us all.
Our founder and Executive Director, Doreen Page is a survivor of 32 years of child sexual abuse and commercial sexual exploitation. When Doreen got out of the life and learned that there was life beyond being exploited she started to help others find their way too.
Doreen and her husband started their personal ministry helping individuals with addictions and other life afflictions. Through this journey and process, Doreen learned more that many of the individuals she worked with, like her, became victims in their youth to child sexual exploitation, some commercial and others not. Doreen began to share her story in the community and realized that not many understood much about abuse, how it happens or why.
Finding Grace Ministries was born in 2015. Finding Grace Ministries then became connected with other passionate members in the community that wanted to see a solution to commercial sexual exploitation of children. Through networking and sharing what we do we found that we could combat sex slavery by educating our youth before they fall victim.
We will be opening our doors to our new drop-in center this fall. The program is an evidence-based practice Jireh Crisis Prevention and Character building. This program alongside her lived experiences believes Finding Grace Ministries will be relatable to youth that are surviving at-risk situations. We have Certified Missouri Peer Specialist licensed by the Department of Mental Health on staff and we are trauma aware agency.
Finding Grace Ministries Youth Drop-in Center is located on the back right side of New Hope United Methodist Church.
