Every 30 seconds another person becomes a victim of slavery.

The age range of girls forced into the illegal sex trade is 12-18 years.

Every year in Miami,
sexual exploitation of victims generates close to $235M.

But there is hope

We have a mission of freedom, health, and restoration

A mission to provide safety, wholeness, and healing.

Join us!


Welcome to The Glory House
of Miami

Our Story

In August of 2011 our eyes were opened to the sex trafficking industry and the shocking truth that the trade is thriving in our own backyard. Around the world, approximately 27 million men, women, and children are enslaved and trafficked. Florida is commonly cited along with New York and California as being one of the top destinations for trafficking victims in the United States, but in Miami alone, $235M is generated through the exploitation of captive adults and children.

These facts hung heavy in our hearts, and our mission became to provide a safe home and healing environment where rescued victims will regain their freedom and health, and where they can become wholly restored through a faith-based approach.
The Glory House of Miami provides long-term service to rescued female victims between the ages of 18-25 years.
