WHAT WE DO
Child Placement and Short-Term Housing for Girls age 7-15
Girls are placed in the Journey Center by the Department of Children Services (CONANI) for up to six months or until permanent placement has been found. While in the center the girls are offered extensive individual and group therapy.
Some girls do not have permanent placement therefore, they are placed in the long-term care of the Journey Center. Long-Term girls are provided private school tuition and supplies, vocational training, and extensive individual and group therapy.
JTDM provides a Vocational Training Program to equip and prepare girls to become independent and self-sufficient members of society. Through vocational training girls reclaim their power and become free from all past bondage and hindrances.
WHO WE ARE
JTDM raises global awareness to battle and confronts various abusive situations including human trafficking, forced child prostitution, and other cases of abuse in young girls particularly in the Dominican Republic and Nairobi Kenya, East Africa. Ambassadors of JTDM travel around the US, speaking about these grave issues affecting girls ages 7-15, and globally promote the mission using social media. In addition to sharing the mission and vision of JTDM in several local churches, organizations, and intimate settings in 2017, 2018 and 2019 JTDM made presentations before thousands of convention-goers for the Church of God in Christ International annual Convocation, International AIM Convention, and the International Women's Convention. During the presentations around the globe, people are able to learn about JTDM’s work and how they could get involved in combating abuse toward girls.
