emergency safe home for sex trafficking survivors

Project Light
Anti-trafficking ministry

“Proclaim the praises of the One who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light” 

1 Peter 2:9


Human trafficking is the fastest growing criminal enterprise in the world.

North Carolina is ranked #9 among the 50 states in cases reported nationally.

Of the 1% who are identified, few receive care, and 80% of survivors end up being re-victimized if they do not have a safe place to go.


One the biggest needs is for EMERGENCY SHELTERS for survivors to begin their care before moving on to a long-term care facility.

In early 2024, we will open the Project Light Emergency Safe Home.

We have partnered with Safe House Project and The Wellhouse for both referrals of clients and for placement to a long-term option that fits their specific need.

Project Light Emergency Safe Home (30-45 Days)

There is a large gap in survivor care between rescue and long-term residential care. Our Emergency Safe Home will be designed to assess and address the most common variables that cause survivors to relapse and achieve stabilization through holistic therapy addressing mind, body, and spirit.

The home will provide beds for survivors for around 30-45 days. By simply opening one home, that equates to the potential of helping up to 48+ women a year! The home will serve women at completely no cost to them.

The home will provide each survivor with acute trauma care, medical evaluations, mental health and wellness assessments, legal advocacy and mapping, case management, and long-term residential placement in partnership with Safe House Project or The Wellhouse.

Opportunities To Get Involved


There will be some paid staff positions (overnight residential staff, coordinator, case manager, and director). Our desire is to have a vast, well-trained, trauma-informed volunteer team that is ready to step in for or alongside our staff. Volunteer positions could consist of day-time program coordinators, teachers, coaches, drivers for clients to get to and from services, house cleaners, making welcome baskets, etc.

Most of our services will be outsourced with our local agency partnerships (medical, mental and health evaluations, detox, etc), but any volunteers who have experience or previous training with dealing with people coming out of traumatic situations would be welcomed.


Raleigh Dream Center relies on individuals, churches and business partners for the majority of their funding. We need financial partners to launch and sustain this ministry.

The biggest need we have that you can fill is to continually pray for this ministry. For our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world powers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens (Eph 6:12). Please be sure to subscribe to our Raleigh Dream Center emailed newsletters and follow us on social media so you can stay aware of where we are in the launching of this ministry and can pray for us every step of the way!

Ways to Identify Trafficking

We were honored to have speaker, advocate and survivor Alexandria LeZion come and share at our Vision & Training Night. She informed our outreach volunteers of all the many forms of trafficking and what to do when you feel someone might be a victim of trafficking.
