What moves you? Join us on October 5, 2019 for the Ride for Refuge, a family-friendly cycling and walking fundraiser that supports charities who provide refuge and hope for displaced, vulnerable and exploited people everywhere.

About Restorations

Ride, or walk with us, on Saturday October 5th!


The issue of human trafficking for commercial sexual exploitation is not exclusively a foreign problem. As more light is shed on the role Canada plays in this international issue, the more we see the gaps in services for victims and survivors.


Restorations exists to provide specialized, long term, holistic care for the victims of human trafficking and sexual exploitation in Canada. We stand for the truth that individuals are made perfectly and purposefully by God with the right to live free from exploitation and abuse. We will create a community that rejoices in each other’s uniqueness, restores physical, spiritual and mental well-being, and empowers individuals to step into their life’s purpose.
