Servant Response Team
The Servant Response Team (SRT) is made up of individuals who desire to demonstrate the value of LOVE by showing kindness and compassion to those in need of urgent or one-time assistance. Whether it’s helping a local family move out of transitional housing into their first apartment or grocery shopping for a vulnerable individual, the SRT is ready to respond to a variety of needs. A current Volunteer Application and Background Check from The Compass Church are required for this serve, along with a Participant Agreement.

Reclaim13’s mission is to end the cycle of sexual exploitation. Statistics show that most children who have been trafficked were sexually abused, neglected, or the victims of other maltreatment. These children are more vulnerable to further abuse and, potentially, exploitation. Age 13 is the average age of trafficked victims and "reclaiming" the lives of trafficked children is what Reclaim13 does. When we partner with Reclaim13, we can help end the cycle of human trafficking through education, healing, and community engagement so that children in our community can grow up feeling safe and loved.

At Lifespring, women learn about the Gospel and God's healing power and work hard to begin a new chapter of their life. Lifespring is located in Aurora, Illinois.
