Children of the Immaculate Heart (CIH) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation operating in San Diego, CA. Our mission is to serve survivors of human trafficking and open the door to their restoration in Jesus Christ. We currently have a housing and rehabilitation program for adult women who are survivors of trafficking and have children. We are also in the process of opening a residential treatment facility for minors who are survivors of human trafficking. These homes are places where those we serve can receive safety, case management, therapy, job training, and education. It is our hope that they will be able to live not only in physical freedom, but that they will encounter the love of Jesus Christ and discover the true freedom of the sons and daughters of God who heals us through His own sacred wounds.
CIH sees the rise in human trafficking as evoked by the widespread cultural objectification of women, the breakdown of the family, sexual activity outside of marriage, pornography, abortion, and contraception. Because human trafficking arises from these issues, CIH seeks to evangelize both the individual human heart and society as a whole.
