Lighthouse for Life is here to teach the people of South Carolina about the realities of the current plague of human trafficking, not just globally or nationally, but right here in their own communities. We strive to EDUCATE and raise awareness about human trafficking in order to provide people with the knowledge and tools needed to EMPOWER them to detect the warning signs of potential human trafficking situations in an effort to protect their own communities. Our mission exists to engage the South Carolina community, to increase awareness and to RESTORE victims of human trafficking to physical, spiritual and emotional wholeness through understanding, love and support.
EDUCATION. RESTORATION. EMPOWERMENT
How can we hope to fight something if we don’t even know that it exists? Despite being the second largest criminal enterprise in the world and the fastest growing, sex trafficking is often misunderstood, overlooked, and ignored. Lighthouse for Life recognizes the critical importance of educating our communities about sex trafficking and how it impacts them. We seek to meet with individuals, families, schools, churches, and civic organizations to share our knowledge of sex trafficking and to empower our audiences with ways they can fight back. Our communities deserve to know what to look for, how to protect themselves and their loved ones, and who to call should they suspect sex trafficking taking place.

From day one it has been our mission to provide a safe, nurturing environment for victims of human trafficking on their long and difficult road to recovery. After almost 4 years we are so happy to introduce you to Karis Home. We have chosen the name Karis as it is the Greek word for grace and the word home is used intentionally rather than house because we want to provide a Home of Grace. Karis Home is uniquely designed to provide long term restorative care to female survivors of domestic minor sex trafficking between the ages of 12 – 21.
At Karis Home we strive to create a safe, stable environment while focusing on not only the physical needs of survivors, but also their emotional and spiritual needs as well through a family style of care. We are fully staffed with on-site counselor, teacher and caregivers along with a team of other professionals all working together to meet each survivor where she is and as she is.
Our aim is to transform victims into survivors and help them to thrive in their new lives. Through love, guidance, life skills training and support, we will empower survivors to transition to healthy, independent living. For victims of human trafficking, the road to recovery is long and difficult. Our desire is to walk beside them as they travel this road, offering medical care, meals, clothing, counseling, education, life skills training and Bible studies. By creating a safe, stable environment and caring for the physical, emotional and spiritual well being of survivors, we empower them to transition from recovery to restoration.
