Did you know one of the nine ministry divisions of Topeka Rescue Mission Ministries is called Restore Hope? The purpose of Restore Hope is to combat the devastation of sexual slavery and human trafficking in our community. The three approaches to do this are Rescue, Educate, and Connect victims of trafficking with our community to help put an end to slavery in Topeka and northeast Kansas. For more information visit our website at trmonline.org or call us at 785-354-1744. Because of great efficiencies God has created here with loyal volunteers and hard-working staff, each $252 gift gives our team the ability to intervene in the life of one person enslaved in sex slavery.

In 2014 TRM Restore Hope ministered to four individuals referred to us as potential victims of human trafficking. In 2015 that number grew to 45. Last year in 2016, the number of referrals grew to 92. So far in 2017 we have interacted with nearly 100 individuals thought to be affected by the devastating effects of human trafficking within our community. This must end in our lifetimes.
