Mahima Care Homes

The Mahima Care Homes are licensed aftercare facilities for the rescue and restoration of girls who were trafficked into the sex trade as minors. Each child receives shelter, nutritious food, counseling, and medical care while the prosecution of perpetrators is aggressively pursued. Through a holistic healing process focused on physical, emotional, spiritual, social, and vocational healing, these girls are safeguarded from re-trafficking into commercial prostitution and introduced to a loving and redemptive Savior for whom no wound is too deep to heal.
