St. John’s Home

The Need

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 seek to create a safe and secure family environment for Roma girls
who are vulnerable to trafficking by providing a safe home, with an ongoing
commitment to educate the community and raise up local leaders to identify
and prevent exploitation and abuse. 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.

Our Mission

We seek to create a safe and secure family environment for Roma girls who are unprotected to trafficking by providing a safe home, with opportunities to learn life skills and job training. We will offer such classesas: English, sewing, basic cosmetology, cooking, gardening, business classes, etc. We also have an ongoing commitment to educate the community and raise up local leaders to identify and prevent exploitation and abuse. Educators are innovators.

OUR VALUES

  • 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
