MInistry helping child victims

Providing a safe shelter for female victims of human trafficking under the age of 11 is the purpose of Camille Place.

“God asks that we are to be His hands and His feet to those in need of His care and mercy,” Stacey Luck told those attending the Republican Women of Coffee County meeting May 15. “These girls need to know they are loved.”

A social work manager for Coffee, Dale, Crenshaw and Pike Counties with the Alabama Health Department, Luck outlined the plans and purpose of the Camille House, an Alabama-based, 501c3 nonprofit organization committed to providing care and rehabilitation to young girls as young as six years old. It is the first such safe shelter for children under 11 years old, Luck said.

The mission of Camille Place is to provide refuge and restoration to girls who have been exploited by human trafficking and to empower the renewal of each girl’s body, soul and spirit in a safe and nurturing home environment with a Christ-center spiritual healing program, Luck said.

“When the girls are rescued from human trafficking, they have nothing,” Luck said, noting that the average age of the victims is between 11 and 14 years old.

Making one-time or recurring tax-deductible donations, sponsoring a girl, giving a donation in memory of a loved one are just some of the ways to help the Camille Place mission, Luck said. “God is going to use your efforts, both large and small, for amazing results.”

Luck asked those interested in more information about Camille Place to contact Chris at (251) 564-1607 or director@camilleplace.com.
