Ransomed Life exists to care for survivors, victims, and the "at-risk" of commercial sexual exploitation of minors. Our vision is to see every exploited youth redeemed and restored.

The abuse has taken place in the context of relationships and we believe that healing will also come from relationships. Each bond formed between the girl and our volunteers are mutually transforming. Not only is it impacting the lives of the girls, but also the lives of each volunteer.

We accomplish restoration through our four pillars of hope: mentoring, education, community engagement, and counseling and restoration.

Ransomed Life believes in the importance of awareness.  Engaging with the community about the realities of sex trafficking is key to success in the fight against trafficking. Ransomed Life has developed multiple presentations to educate the community on the dangers of sex trafficking:

  • General Awareness
  • Medical (offering CEUs)
  • School Counselors
  • Parents
  • Youth

We are passionate about getting in front of as many youths as possible to educate them on the tricks, traps, and lures of traffickers.

Ransomed Life now offers on-demand presentations that can be accessed via our website, in addition to in-person and virtual presentations.

Ransomed Life is one of the only organizations in San Antonio that offers to mentor this specific demographic.

Since the trauma has been in relationships, Ransomed Life believes that healing will also come through relationships. That is why we offer both group and one-on-one mentoring.

We have group activities that bring a holistic approach to encompass spiritual, mental, behavioral, and physical care while having fun. In addition, each girl is paired with a trauma-trained mentor to walk alongside them through life. The mentor helps them set goals and reinforces the work happening with the counselors.
