Out of Darkness is the trafficking ministry of the Atlanta Dream Center
In the city of Atlanta, there are hundreds of women being bought and sold for sex every single night. Having been manipulated into thinking they have no worth, these slaves of sex-trafficking are controlled by feelings of desperation and despair. They wear scars of physical and emotional abuse. Still, we see their intrinsic beauty and eternal worth, and, now, thanks to the love of God and the efforts of our trafficking ministry, Out of Darkness, these women are seeing it, too.
Out of Darkness relies on a number of methods to reach, rescue and restore these victims of sexual exploitation. Weekly outreaches, such as Princess Night and local jail ministry, as well as a 24/7 hotline manned by trained responders all help women safely leave the streets and enter into a new life. Once the women have been rescued and placed in safe lodging, they are given necessary medical care and paired with loving long-term mentors to begin the restoration process. During their stay in our safe homes, the women build friendships, attend Bible studies, receive counseling and, ultimately, are helped to gain placement in a 12- month restorative care program.
By enabling women to escape the streets and experience healing and new, eternal life through the Great Physician, Out of Darkness brings awareness to the evils of sex trafficking and sheds light on the goodness of God.
