How & why we began

God gave me a teacher's heart and I have very much enjoyed teaching students Mathematics for more than 30 years.  However, in 2008 I was shocked to learn that we have thousands of children & women in the U.S. who are enslaved to sex traffickers via prostitution & pornography. My wife and I decided that God was calling us to lead our community to help these people escape from the pimps and pedophiles who were abusing them physically and sexually.  The Daughter Project is an amazing opportunity for me to express my love for Jesus Christ by loving and caring for sex trafficking survivors.  I urge you and everyone else in the world to join us in this labor of love!

Recovery Home

In the summer of 2011, God inspired many, many people in northwest Ohio to help us build a recovery home for female, adolescent survivors of sex trafficking.  Within one year, a beautiful, $250,000 home was built, completely furnished and mortgage free.  God had taken our prayers and desire and led others to donate their time and talent to build a recovery home for young girls.

Our first girl arrived in the fall of 2012 and in the following five years, 15 adolescent girls began their life-long journey of recovery in our home.  The girls ranged in age from 12 to 17 years old.  In 2017, we ceased operating the home but we are actively investigating a more sustainable model for helping young girls and we are excited to see where God will lead us next!  As we explore other options, we continue to work with adult women rescued from sex trafficking and are always seeking awareness and advocacy opportunities.  Here is a list of some of our supporters.
