Rapha House exists to love, rescue, and heal children who have been rescued from trafficking and sexual exploitation.
Our Organization and Values
Rapha House is a public benefit 501©3 nonprofit committed to ending the trafficking and sexual exploitation of children. Founded in 2003, Rapha House continues to rescue and rehabilitate children, while bringing them to lasting freedom. Love • Rescue • Heal is more than a slogan to us. It’s a way of life at Rapha House.
We are Christians who take seriously the Scripture that reads: “Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth” (1 John 3:18). And it is with compassion energized and sustained by love that we act on behalf of victimized children wherever we find them.
Though we are committed Christians, we offer aid without requiring those that we help to embrace our faith. When Jesus fed the 5,000, he did not withhold from those who refused to believe. He gave freely, and so do we.
No child deserves to be trafficked. No child deserves to be sexually exploited.
We seek to end the trafficking and exploitation of children completely. And we work to provide the best possible care to survivors.
Rapha House seeks to…
- “franchise” proven solutions for the rehabilitation and empowerment of survivors, and prevent trafficking and exploitation around the world;
- establish Rapha House as an international leader of best practices in combating human trafficking;
- mobilize Christ’s church to powerfully respond to this evil;
- build strategic alliances with humanitarian and government agencies to combat trafficking and its causes.
Our mandate is found in Proverbs. This is our calling and the calling of everyone seeking to do good.
Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; ensure justice for those being crushed. Yes, speak up for the poor and helpless, and see that they get justice.
Proverbs 31:8,9, NLT
