Rescue   Redeem   Renew

Esthers Rising

We are a faith based organization working relentlessly to rescue, redeem, and renew child survivors of sex trafficking and exploitation.
About Us

Helping child victims of human trafficking know that they are Valuable & Healed through Him

It is our mission to create an emergency home in the Black Hills of South Dakota for girls who are rescued from human trafficking where their immediate physical and emotional needs will be met. The home will then act as a long-term healing center where the children are given trauma counseling, education and medical care. The last step in the process is to develop life skills and move towards successful independent living.

Our  co-founders, Suzi & Cheri, met with Anya Mueller of NewsCenter1 to talk about our 2nd Annual Hope Givers Gala.
