What a year! Despite pandemics, natural disasters, and civil unrest, Metanoia continued to offer refuge to adolescent female victims of human trafficking. New faces brought fresh challenges, but the graces from God continue to provide. As 2020 draws to a close, we report several quantitative services provided to residents throughout this calendar year.

It is hard to believe Metanoia celebrated our 2nd anniversary in February. 

Year 2019 allowed the continued opportunity to offer refuge to adolescent female victims of human trafficking. Each new individual presents fresh challenges but the grace of God continues to provide for every individual need.

Since opening, Metanoia has had the opportunity to provide support, restoration, and resources to adolescent females. In 2019, 61 young ladies received resources and 21 of those received residential services.
