A Journey from Uncertainty To Hope and Restoration

A Mother’s Mission

“When my daughter turned 18, she met someone quite a bit older and soon moved to a different country without much explanation. Those years were filled with questions and concerns. Every so often, I’d get a hint of her whereabouts, but it was never enough to ease my mind.

Then, a friend who had attended a Destiny House Restoration Center concert told me about their mission. Beyond offering survivor support, they offer restoration and reintegration programs. With their help, I learned my daughter had been caught up in the world of trafficking and that they could help me bring her home.

Destiny House teamed up with local law enforcement, legal experts, and the Phoenix Dream Center to bring her home. When she returned, I was hit with another blow: she had been battling a fentanyl addiction for two years.

Now, thanks to the residential healing programs and survivor support at Destiny House, she’s healing. Their dedication to trafficking awareness and child protection has not only brought my daughter back but also shines as a beacon of hope for many more.”

Help us realize our vision of healing, restoration, and social integration.

From the Nightmare Of Sin City Towards a Path of Healing

Lost and Found in Las Vegas: A Sister’s Story

“My sister and I were just teenagers when we were drawn to Las Vegas. Everyone talks about the city’s bright lights and big dreams. But for us, it quickly turned into a nightmare. We thought we were heading for good jobs and a fresh start. Instead, we got trapped in a world where people were bought and sold. Las Vegas might be a dream for some, but for us, it felt like a prison.

Then, in 2006, everything changed. We were rescued during a big FBI sting operation that was all about saving young people like us from bad situations in the city. A few years after that, we got to share our story at a concert for the Destiny House Restoration Center. It was scary to talk about what happened to us, but we wanted people to know the truth. Our story was written in a book called “Somebody’s Daughter: The Story of America’s Prostituted Children.

Every time we tell our story, it touches people’s hearts. Some come up to us and share their own stories or talk about someone they know who went through something similar. These concerts aren’t just about music; they’re about healing and finding hope. The Destiny House Restoration Center in Arizona has been like a family to us. They’ve given us so much support and helped us heal.

Groups like the National Trafficking Sheltered Alliance are doing amazing work to spread the word about trafficking and how to keep kids safe. And thanks to the family resources from places like Destiny House, we didn’t just find a transition home; we found a home. Every time we share, we’re reminded of how important it is to talk about trafficking and how places like the Destiny House Restoration Center are making a real difference for people like us.”

Destiny House Restoration Center: Making a Difference, One Life at a Time

The Starfish Parable –
A Message Of Hope from Lisa Mitts

There’s a story about a man walking on a beach filled with starfish. They were all washed up on the shore, and there were thousands of them. As he walked, he saw a kid picking up starfish and gently throwing them back into the sea.

Curious, the man asked the child, ‘Why are you doing that? There are so many starfish here; you can’t possibly save them all. What difference does it make?’ The kid picked up another starfish, threw it back into the water, and said, ‘It made a difference to that one.’

Just like the child in the story, we believe in making a difference, even if it’s just for one person at a time. Every life matters, and every little bit of help counts.
