The story of Courage & Healing Home
Courage & Healing Home (also known as Courage Homes) works with girls age 12-17 who have been rescued from sex trafficking and other forms of sexual abuse.We help them chart a new path of healing and empowerment for a better future.
Girls are assigned to the home by the Child Welfare Committee, Govt. of Delhi after rescue by the Police. Our home becomes a starting point for them to move into a new journey, irrespective of how long they stay with us.
Since January 2012 we have helped over 200 girls begin on the road from brokenness to healing. We strive to create a safe environment to fuel creativity and hope and to empower our girls helping them make good choices in life.
The girls who come to Courage & Healing Home are rescued from a wide variety of situations including incest, rape, sex trafficking, and bonded labor. Often, they are sent to us immediately after rescue.
Many girls stay with us for 2-6 months and then proceed to other long term care options. In some cases girls remain with us until they turn 18. We are grateful for this opportunity to walk alongside the girls for a longer period.
Whether our girls are with us for a short or long time, we aim to impart a love for learning, hope for a better future, and new ways of relating, so they will be less vulnerable to future exploitation.
