In the 21st century, far too many people are trapped in the darkness of sex trafficking. Without a path towards freedom, many of these individuals will die without ever knowing they are loved.
Out of Darkness is on the frontlines every day rescuing these individuals. When people are rescued out of sex trafficking they can begin to walk out God's purpose for their lives and become a beacon of light for others.
Jami Gray, Brandy Zachariah and Tiffany Tripp (pictured above from left to right) came together with various levels of experience in the anti-human trafficking world in early 2015 to explore what role they would play in this fight in Columbus, OH.
After months of meeting with various anti-trafficking organizations throughout Central Ohio to find out what was already in place and what was missing, there was a common theme that the state was in desperate need for housing, specifically a safe home for adult victims of human trafficking.
During a trip to Atlanta, GA to learn from some of the strongest aftercare programs in the country, they met with Out of Darkness, the anti-trafficking ministry of Atlanta Dream Center, Inc., a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. A bond was created and in the summer of 2015 Jami, Brandy and Tiffany started the first out of state chapter of Out of Darkness.

To be ambassadors for Jesus Christ, with God making His appeal through us for the world to be reconciled to Him.
Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.
2 Corinthians 5:20 ESV
Our purpose and passion is to love the broken.
We are committed to serving the Lord, bringing light to the darkness.
We love all people, regardless of current situation and call them to a higher standard that leads to restoration.
We do not rely on human wisdom, but rather seek answers and council through hours of prayer and intercession for those we reach.
We are the hands and feet of Jesus, reaching out to the lost and giving hope to the hopeless.
