48 CCM RevolutionaRies Artists And orgAnizAtions helping to fight injustices Around the world When I traveled to India in 2005 and saw firsthand the tragedy of sexual slavery, I made a commitment to spend the rest of my life speaking on this issue and working to make a difference. Recently it’s become apparent that you don’t have to go across the world to impact change for those victimized by slavery, but possibly, just across the street. In the last couple of years we have been made aware of the need for quality services for domestic survivors of sexual slavery, specifically dedicated shelters. The Home Foundation, founded in 2005, is passionate about working to increase the number of these homes in the United States. When you give to The Home Foundation, you help us change lives by supporting Christian shelters devoted to the full restoration of survivors, thus increasing the likelihood that these individuals can lead productive lives, free from their pasts. Established shelters dedicated to the total restoration of an individual rescued from sexual slavery will have a huge impact on the face of modern-day slavery and the abolitionist movement of the 21st century. When victims become totally reintegrated into society, they are empowered to speak out against their perpetrators and affect change for other victims. All of this moves us closer to achieving our ultimate goal: a day when slavery is truly eradicated. —Natalie Grant Natalie GraNt, the hoMe Foundation To find out more information, please visit www.thehomefoundation.net 48 CCM
