Teams of Tomorrow’s Hope

The success of Tomorrow’s Hope ministry depends on specialized teams of people all working together for a common goal; to bring someone who is at risk to a place of renewed hope, safety, and success.
 
Volunteers will serve in one of the following teams:
 
Family Services Unit
The Family Services team comes alongside families of a missing or runaway child and supports them and equips them to do the best practices that will bring their child home in the shortest amount of time as possible.
 
Intelligence Team
This team works with the information collected from parents and guardians of runaways and missing kids to put together the best possible search strategies. They will also be involved in the search. This team will also identify current trends and changing techniques of traffickers in the metro area. They identify the hotspots for recruitment so that outreach teams can work those areas, they also work to provide intelligence and security for the both the Rapid Response and Extraction Teams.
 
Outreach Workers
Outreach workers are female volunteers that do our outreach to at risk youth. Due to safety reasons we don’t post what these outreach activities are. The ladies on this team also serve on the Rapid Response and Extraction Teams.
 
Rapid Response and Extraction Team
This team is made up of outreach and intelligence team volunteers. They have a two-fold mission; safely remove minor girls from situations where they are at risk of exploitation and to provide transport services for women seeking to escape out of prostitution and enter a safe house, shelter, treatment or other safe places.
 
Safe House
A safe house is a place a young woman 16 and older can stay up to 14 days in order to stabilize her from unsafe living situations. They play the role of parents in the young person’s life, and if all parties agree could open their home for a longer stay. This home is not for a safe house for children who have been sexually exploited but for those who are at risk.  Any young person staying at this home must first clear a background check.  We do not harbor runaways.   
 
Post-Care Homes
This homes that would provide a room to rent for girls leaving a safe house and transitioning into working or school. They provide stability and a sense of accountability and connection as the girl adapts to her new lifestyle.
 
Resource and Partnership Development
This teams works on building relationships with social service agencies and ministries that offer what the girls need areas of physical, medical, educational emotional, behavioral and spiritual health. They will maintain a database of resources and partners that the care team, outreach and family services teams will use to help the girl and their family identify appropriate services.
 
Funding Development Team
Function: Help structure the budget of the ministry and develop funding partners throughout the region that will ensure the ministry can carry out its mission.
