About Genesis Ranch
Our mission is to be a Christ-centered aftercare community committed to healing through holistic therapeutic services for commercially exploited girls. We are in the process of preparing a place that will exist to rescue, love and heal girls who have been exploited. By providing a comforting environment, access to medical care, education and vocational training, as well as life counseling, Genesis Ranch hopes to see commercially exploited girls experience healing and human flourishing. The hope is that healing found through Christ will culminate in a successful transition to mainstream culture.
