St. John’s Home
The Roma are an ethnic group in Bulgaria that has suffered persecution for generations. Due to racism and lack of equality, they face severe poverty and widespread unemployment which leads them with limited access to health care, opportunities, and higher education.
We cannot address human trafficking without addressing the compounding issues that allow exploitation to thrive, such as poverty, hunger, racism, unemployment, and the spiritual condition.
As a human trafficking prevention organization, we aim to reach at-risk young women due to poverty, ethnic marginalization, and childhood trauma such as young women aging out of orphan or foster care.
- We emphasize the need to model a strong Christian family, with safety and provision of needs
- We are a loving group of people whose core values come from God and His Word
- We believe in seeing people the way God sees them with value, hope, and purpose and to provide opportunities and an “atmosphere of growth” for these God given gifts to thrive

The Set Free Movement seeks holistic freedom to create new futures and end modern slavery through community-based action and partnership with others.
