Building young men who are survivors of sex trafficking according to God’s original design to mobilize them into the world as men of strength, purpose, and integrity.

At least 35% of the children coming out of sex trafficking are boys. That’s why we’ve joined forces with our sister program, Sarah’s Home, to make this possible.

The Unfortunate Reality

What is Sex Trafficking?

Sex trafficking is defined as the use of force, fraud or coercion to cause another to perform a commercial sex act. However, federal law informs us that any minor under the age of 18 years involved in commercial sex is considered to be a victim of sex trafficking—regardless of any indicators of force, fraud, or coercion.

Trafficking is a several billion dollar industry, making it the second largest illegal trade in the United States following the drug trade.

How it Happens

Sex trafficking is highly adaptable and portrays itself differently in various cultures. Though this is not nearly a comprehensive list, here are some of the common ways sex trafficking happens in the US:

Our History

Daniel AcademyIn 2018, Vicki Proffit, the Executive Director of Sarah’s Home, the sister home to Daniel Academy, began hearing about the staggering numbers surrounding how many boys are being trafficked in the United States. It was at this time that God began laying it on her heart to open a home for these boys.

In December 2020, she was approached by the owners of an 1,800 acre ranch. The owners had unsuccessfully tried to open a home for boys coming out of sex trafficking. They had heard about Sarah’s Home and reached out to see if she could help them. At the end of the meeting, they said, “You know how to do this. Why don’t we join forces and get this accomplished?”

After several meetings with them and our board, the two generous individuals decided to donate a 40-acre parcel of their ranch for Daniel Academy. Then, because of the generosity of our donors, we were able to purchase adjacent land fully equipped with all the infrastructure already in place to build out this vision. This means we have a total of about 60 acres for Daniel Academy! What a great place to minister to teen boys!

The name Daniel Academy was inspired by Daniel in the Bible. Even in the midst of great injustice, Daniel built his life upon the principles of prayer and purpose. God gave him great favor; he was granted the position of an advisor to four kings and power as a leader among nations. His ability to overcome adversity, while displaying Godly character has built our foundational hope of rebuilding these young men to God’s original design so that they may be mobilized to enter the world as men of strength, purpose, and integrity in the manner of Christ.
