Who is Courage Worldwide?
Hear from the girls at Courage House
San Francisco Giants
“When I think of ‘courageous’, I think a lot of people think of warriors, and they think of people who are doing a lot of big things, and I look at people of courage as people who are will to stand out and say something that a lot of people don’t really want to say. So I think that to be a person of courage, you don’t have to be a famous person, you don’t have to have a big name, you just have to be one to stand up for what’s right. I believe that in the fight for human trafficking, anybody and everybody who fights for human trafficking is courageous.”
—Jeremy Affeldt, Pitcher for the San Francisco Giants
“As a fellow abolitionist, it is my privilege to join hands with Jenny and Courage Worldwide. Many people do not realize that sex trafficking is happening in the United States. I’m honored to help shine a spotlight on the problem and give people a chance to be a part of the solution. This is going to be a powerful event.”
—Natalie Grant, award-winning Christian recording artist
United Nations Ambassador
“Jenny and her tireless team see the human being that has been brutally exploited, and set about to nourish her young soul back into health and possibility. They give a girl a chance to make the courageous choice to run away from her trafficker, because there will be a loving circle of arms to fall into. Statistics are pretty brutal when it comes to victims who have managed to escape their traffickers: without strong institutional help and support, there is a very strong chance they will be retrafficked within days. Courage Worldwide has rightly focused on the most dire need: the individual nurturing of these young people back to health and self-belief, using love as the mightiest tool of all to vanquish the evil they have experienced. They are quite literally saving young lives, lifting them back up to the light.
Courage Worldwide is at the forefront of what I hope one day will be a ubiquitous national and international movement, that of capacity-building to receive the incredibly needy and under served population of youth and adults who have been the victims of human trafficking. What places them so ahead of the curve is their understanding that our own kids who are bought and sold into commercial sexual exploitation are trafficking victims, while many others still see them through the archaic and judgmental lens that determines them to be “child prostitutes,” somehow responsible for the horrendous existence they find themselves in, before they have even been deemed to be capable of voting, drinking, or even consenting to sexual relations. Anyone who has spent any time talking with a minor who has been out of ‘the life’ for a while will immediately understand that their life circumstances were generally such that the concept of ‘lifestyle choice’ is impossible to levy upon them.”

“The opening of Courage House will provide young women with a sanctuary from predators who would take advantage of them, give them the resources to escape the streets and provide an atmosphere of compassion and support. I encourage others to replicate this model as we continue the fight to apprehend perpetrators of sex crimes, and help these vulnerable young women get off of the streets and out of harm’s way.”
—U.S. Congresswoman Doris O. Matsui
