Abused & Abandoned
Each year, an estimated 400,000 children are victims of sex trafficking and another 679,000 children are victims of abuse and neglect in America. Abuse is all too common — right here in our backyards. We go into those unseen places, where children are forced to fend for themselves and survival instincts often replace compassionate care, to uncover their stories and bring them to safety. But rescue is only the beginning. These children need a home.
Abuse and neglect beget abuse and neglect. The hardest part of rescuing a child is restoring them to the whole child they were meant to be — to wipe away the dirt of their past to reveal their true story and their true identity. Rescue must be followed by restoration in a safe home where committed caregivers, through hope and commitment, tirelessly work to provide a life of love and opportunity where only darkness and brokenness were before.
ChildX restores children of incarcerated parents, children who have experienced neglect or abuse and children affected by the world of sex trafficking. Once a child is rescued from abuse, neglect, or even trafficking, the hard work of restoration begins. ChildX provides both foster and residential programs to ensure each rescued child has a shot at restoration.
ChildX does the hard work of reintegrating hurting children into healthy, loving environments. Through residential care, ChildX can provide safe homes and families to the children otherwise left wanting. Using the Whole Child Initiative to ensure the educational, spiritual, emotional, and physical needs of all children are met.
Effective residential care is a way to serve the more than 100,000 individual children as well as sibling groups in need of a home in the United States — providing an opportunity for each child to overcome existing obstacles, build on their strengths, and experience the love of a big, diverse family.
ChildX takes in children who need a home, a family, and a healthy living environment. Foster caregivers take children into their own homes and incorporate them into their own families. Providing temporary or long-term care for children whose parents are unable to care for them due to incarceration, addiction or any other number of reasons.
Whether the placement is temporary, while a mother serves a prison sentence, or the permanent addition of a child who has been rescued from sex trafficking, ChildX foster caregivers do the difficult work of restoring identities to children who previously had their identity taken.
