Human Trafficking is CLOSER than you think!
The Refuge, a facility for the long-term rehabilitation of girls who are survivors of domestic minor child sex trafficking, is now a permanent outreach of The Lakeway Church. It is supported financially as well as with volunteer time and effort. The Women’s Ministry Steering Committee has a subcommittee, chaired by Carole Dueser, that is continually developing ways in which we can be of service. Current involvement:
- A Worship Team brings a short evening service to the girls and house moms one night every month. Also, the Team takes dinner, which is prepared by a Food Committee. There are 10 members on the Team, each completing extensive volunteer requirements in order to have direct contact with the girls, and they rotate going five at a time.
- Thanks to the efforts of Sharon Rogers, craft kits are being sent with the Worship Team and distributed to the girls for an after-dinner activity.
- Members of TLC’s Pottery Class are cutting and firing DOVE-shaped tiles, which are part of the Dove Tile Project Kits being shipped across the country. Volunteers are needed and appreciated. Time: Monday, 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon, Youth Building.
- How can you help: The Refuge is continually looking for therapists, house moms and therapeutic care staff. Please go to https://therefugeaustin.org for additional information.
