our solution

The Lampstand empowers the lives of those vulnerable to and affected by sexual exploitation in two strategic ways


In order to prevent, identify, and report trafficking, people must know what to look for. We educate the public about sexual exploitation and trafficking through prevention education and professional trainings.


There is a major lack of resources for those affected by sexual exploitation in our state and nation. To meet the need in our area, we provide holistic, trauma-informed support that victims and survivors deserve.

we believe healing and hope are found in Jesus.

but rather on a lampstand,
