Shechem Children's Home

Creating a home for hope and healing.
Project Information

The Shechem Children’s Home is a short-term assessment center for children like Hannah and Christie: survivors of online sexual exploitation of children (OSEC). This is a form of human trafficking where images or videos of children performing sexual acts are sold over the internet. It is a growing problem globally and in the Philippines, where Shechem is located.

There are many factors that make OSEC difficult and complicated to address, including the facts that:

  • The majority of the crime’s perpetrators are direct relatives of the children
  • It is a global issue. The people driving this financially are overwhelming based in wealthy, western countries around the world
  • Safe long-term living situations can be difficult to determine

The Shechem Children’s Home provides the following—and more—for children:

  • Therapists, house parents, staff from the Church of the Nazarene, and both in-home and community social workers trained in trauma care
  • A safe, secure, and loving living environment for up to 12 children
  • Assistance with determining permanent placement for children
  • Medical, educational, and spiritual care
  • A loving environment based in the love and compassion of Christ
