The Landing Ministry

The Landing

At The Landing, we serve women, men, and children in Houston who have experienced the sex trade. Our hope is to share the love of Christ and help survivors find safety, empowerment, and freedom. Less than 1% of human trafficking victims are identified, and many victims don’t even realize they’re being trafficked. By serving anyone who has experienced the sex trade, whether or not they are an identified victim of human trafficking, we are therefore eliminating barriers to service and increasing victim identification. We work to identify a survivor on their journey, welcome them into a safe and loving community, and empower them to write the next chapter of their story through our programs.
