Beliefs:
*God is the creator of everything, especially the girls we are planning to help.
*In order to heal, our "daughters" need to be cared for professionally and loved personally. 
*In order to recover, the girls need to walk their own road of recovery but we can help them along the way.
*A relationship with God is supremely personal, each girl will be given complete freedom in this area and our care & love for them will be given in a completely non-discriminatory way.


Programs: To provide holistic healing services in an extremely safe, home-like environment to girls who have been freed from sex traffickers.  The services will include; abuse & addiction counseling, family/friend restoration, health & nutrition education, medical/dental/vision care, legal counsel and spiritual mentorship. 
More specifically, we have recruited doctors, counselors and other professionals to provide medical services to our girls.  We are also developing plans for art, drama, equine and music therapy.
In addition to medical services, we have begun to contact various local community organizations to provide healthy, educational opportunities for our girls.  Some of these include the YMCA, the Zoo, the Symphony and others.

Finances:
Personnel: 5 House Moms & 1 Case Manager (PAID),
Volunteers in position such as director, board members as well as all our committee members; nurses, counselors, lawyers, college students, teachers
Planning to operate without a home office, company car, office computer, copier, etc. All of our meetings are conducted at various locations around town and all the committee members use their own vehicles, computers, etc. to complete their work for TDP.
Estimate the overall cost of operating our recovery home for girls rescued from trafficking to be about $100 per girl, per day

Funding:
Some state tax dollars- however, they do not want to be dependent on this money and are looking to become self-sufficient
