A New Home for Child Sexual Trafficking Survivors



Compassion First provides long-term, hope-filled aftercare solutions for survivors of child sexual trafficking. Our flagship transitional home, Ruth's House, is located in Indonesia. Operating in a vulnerable area in a severely under-served country, CF's Ruth's House needs to serve as a multifunctional center, providing not only aftercare but intake and stabilization services. The current location of Ruth's House severely limits our ability to include these operational disciplines.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Indonesia has over 237 million people and 17,508 islands--sex trafficking is a thriving industry there. Since the beginning of our field work, CF has experienced, first hand, the lack of services and NGO's engaged in assisting survivors. We are the first U.S. organization to be operating there and the only organization to be providing long-term/comprehensive services for such a specific need. As knowledge of us spreads we will quickly reach capacity at our shelter and will need a larger center.

How will this project solve this problem?

Our presence in the field has lead to strong partnerships with Indonesian Governmental Organizations, police departments, and growing relationships with other local humanitarian NGO's. We anticipate an influx of referrals, reporting of trafficking cases and police intervention/activity. A new shelter will at least double our client capacity, solve sanitation needs, allow for a better security set-up and help us build out program components: outside exercise, study/activity space, therapy room.

Potential Long Term Impact

We are looking for a long-term center location. We hope to occupy the new center for at least 3 years and look to expand by opening new traditional homes in other locations thereafter.
