Partnership is a key element of our work. SHP partners with other established organizations who are driven to raising awareness, raising funds, and using their talents to help fight this crisis. Our resource partnerships are selected throughout the course of the year. If you are interested in being a resource partner (click here).
Additionally, SHP partners with organizations who are building or currently operating Safe Houses globally. The selection of the individual houses is accomplished through a process which involves organizations submitting a request for funds along with details of their plan, resources, other funding capacity, and building specs (if needed). The Safe House Project Board of Directors will vote annually in December to select the Safe Houses it will resource for the following year. Funds are allocated each December.

Renaissance Movement Music
A hip-hop label that launched the first efforts of Safe House Project™. The initial vision was to create an album and concert tour to raise funds and awareness of sex trafficking. 100% of the net proceeds of the album go directly towards building a Safe House for orphaned children in the Soshanguve township, South Africa. These voiceless children daily face the very real dangers of sex trafficking and slavery. Through the universal art of hip hop, continued record sales of the Safe House album and future album projects, RMM endeavors to accomplish this Safe House mission, while simultaneously sharing the tangible hope that the gospel of Jesus Christ brings to a hurting world.
Epic Sports Marketing (ESM)
An elite-level endurance sports marketing event company. SHP’s partnership with Epic began with a vision held by ESM owner, Zahid Buttar, and Safe House Project CEO, Kristi Wells, to create a race series to combat human trafficking. Through combined forces, the Safe House Project Half Marathon and 5k Nationwide race series™ was created as a means to raise awareness and funds to resource Safe Houses. Through this partnership, the inaugural race in Virginia Beach, Virginia raised more than $7500 to go towards the building of a Safe House in South Africa. Safe House Project Half Marathon and 5k will host 4 races in 2018. Locations include Virginia, Central Florida, Florida Panhandle and North Carolina.
Kerus Global Education
The vision of Kerus Global Education is to offer hope and better health through practical, character-based programs. Currently, they are raising funds to build a Safe House in Soshanguve, South Africa that will serve as a refuge for orphans who are facing an imminent threat of sex trafficking. The land has been purchased and the construction is scheduled to start in September of 2018. The Co-founders are Dr. Marcia Ball and Dr. Jennie Cerullo.
The Secret Place
The Secret Place, a home of refuge and healing, is a specialized, faith-based, residential safe house program, currently being licensed by the State of Florida through the Department of Children and Families. This home will accommodate girls (ages 12-17) who have been identified as victims of Commercial Sexual Exploitation, also known as Human Trafficking. Situated on 10 acres in an undisclosed location, this home will provide the shelter, fundamental needs, and the nurturing environment these youth need and so deserve. Residents will receive 7-9 months of weekly therapeutic group and individual counseling as well as basic life skills, mentoring, schooling, tutoring resources, and recreational and sports therapy.
