Programs

Working in specifically under-served or un-served regions, Compassion First's flagship international operation is in Indonesia. A Safe, Secure and Loving Home. Staffed with 24 hour security, incredible house mothers and support staff in and out throughout the day; our girls are at the center of an amazing family that is committed to their future. Medical, Dental and Psychological Care. Each child comes with unique needs. Most have never been to a dentist and need significant restorative work. Each child also requires a comprehensive medical screening. Within days of intake, evaluations are done and treatment plans are set in place. A therapeutic path toward recovery is also engaged. Mentorship. Our clients live in an environment that is loving and grace-filled. Wrap-around mentorship care is a daily reality and an integrated part of our program. Education to the Highest Potential of Each Child. We re-engage the educational path of each child with the assumption that they can succeed. With a belief in each individual, our responsibility to the client is not just to see them complete their education but to help them to dream about the future that they want and then to work towards those goals. Compassion First is committed to managing a case-file through the completion of their college education or high end vocational training. Progressive Athletic and/or Alternative Activity. Over the next months we are introducing several athletic programs that provide our clients access to opportunities that they would have not otherwise had. Formal program opportunities include tennis, golf, dance and karate. Legal Advocacy Representation. Each of our clients that come to us has been legally rescued from a trafficking situation. As such, each one is involved in a case before the courts. Even though our clients are only witnesses, the cases are complex. We provide comprehensive professional legal care for each child through the whole of the court process. Compassion First is actively engaging in a Judicial Review before the Constitutional Court of Indonesia. Specific to Indonesia, Compassion First is working to change trafficking landscape altogether. In recent years, Indonesia has adopted laws and engaged efforts that have improved the state to a Tier 2 status on the U.S. State Departments Trafficking in Persons report. The laws, however, remain largely unenforced and otherwise weak. As well, the laws themselves are being used to criminalize victims.
