Arrow Child & Family Ministries: Freedom Place

Freedom Place is a comprehensive Christ-Centered care and recovery center for underage female victims of child sex trafficking. It is the first facility of its kind in the state of Texas. Our mission is to offer a successful path to freedom for domestic children who have suffered as sex slaves.

The comprehensive recovery program at Freedom Place includes:

  • Medical Care
  • Substance Abuse Treatment
  • Psychiatric Evaluation and Treatment
  • Psychological and Trauma Counseling
  • High staff to child ratio – One professional staffer member to three children
  • Education – Classes that meet accredited curriculum requirements will be conducted on site.
  • Daily Living Skills – Designed to prepare the girls for independent living, this program will teach personal care, housekeeping, proper nutrition, budgeting, and employment preparation and counseling.
  • Spiritual Needs – What sets Freedom Place apart from other programs is Arrow’s belief that God can truly change lives forever. Arrow serves all in need, regardless of their faith. We will assess each girl’s spiritual needs and offer opportunities for her to learn, grow and mature in her spiritual walk. With help from our coalition of churches, we will provide a circle of Christian friends and mentors who can help her transition to a new life.
  • Equestrian Therapy
  • Reunification with family/relatives – Arrow will exhaust every opportunity to successfully reunite the victim with her immediate family or relatives when appropriate. If the child is unable to reunite with her family, Arrow will seek foster care within our network of Christian families or if the girl is of age, we will prepare her to live independently.
  • Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. (Isaiah 40:31)
