We exist to offer restoration for women who have been affected by sexual exploitation.
Valiant Hearts comes alongside women to offer crisis intervention, resources, support, and healing from the trauma and hardships associated with being sexually exploited.
We also coordinate outreach efforts to all 40+ strip clubs in DFW and have expanded to homeless shelters, women’s shelters, public jail facilities, and probation departments in order to bring hope to women currently being exploited.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our long-term vision is to eradicate sexual exploitation by offering support, resources, and education to those being impacted by this issue.

We have developed a holistic approach to eradicating sexual exploitation by targeting 5 key groups:
• Women who've been exploited
• Men who are addicted to sex or porn
• At-risk youth
• Families who have a child who's been victimized
• Internationally trafficked victims

We have developed programs and support groups as well as key resources to help those who are trapped in this way.
• We have been able to reach students in 5 school districts this year with our prevention program.
• We have supplied support and outreach for women who are currently or have been in the sex industry as well as their children.
• We have an ongoing support group for the men as well as development this year of a First Offender Prostitution Prevention Program for men
• We have an ongoing support group for families in conjunction with a partnership with FW Police Dept and Homeland Security to get resources to families in crisis.
• We have helped establish trauma care for victims in Iraq, Scotland and the Philippines this year.

So far we have accomplished the following in 2017:
• Reached 6,000 women in DFW this year who are being sexually exploited with our outreach efforts
• Reached 850 students this year with our prevention program
• Provided training for the administration of an entire school district
• Provided training for a local youth ministry team
• Provided resources and support for 50 women in the sex industry through our weekly support group and case management
• Helped decrease the demand for sexual exploitation by providing our weekly support for men
• Helped establish the first restoration home for sex trafficked victims in Scotland by providing them our program and training

What's next?
• We want to continue to expand and multiply the programs we have developed to other cities and nations
• We want to develop a restoration home program for DFW
• We want to create an emergency shelter for sex trafficked victims in DFW.
