Safe to Hope

A non-profit ministry that combines law enforcement experience with education and hospitality in finding Biblical hope for CSA (Child Sexual Abuse) issues.


Encourage CSA victims to feel comfortable in defining the truths of their abuse story through wholesome retreats at the farmhouse

Educate the worldwide community on the epidemic of CSA and on practical ways to detect and prevent it

Equip leaders and victim-supporters to create safe public environments and to start the conversations that will lead to healing and hope at home

Enrich the local community through family-style events on the farm, designed to support education and victim services


Every victim finds healing.  Every leader helps.
