The Refuge For DMST  The Refuge Ranch is a long-term, residential, therapeutic community for girls, minors through age 19, who have been rescued out of sex trafficking.

Thank you to for donating 20 new doormats for the new buildings at The Refuge Ranch!

Rainbow over The Refuge Ranch!

"Hidden away down a long caliche road and surrounded by soaring pines, The Refuge Ranch feels like a 50-acre slice of Texas heaven.

"For young victims of sex-trafficking, the ranch represents a chance to build a new life. Opened in August, it is the culmination of one woman’s dream to create a healing place that specifically addresses the complex trauma suffered by those who were bought and sold for sex at a young age."

Rain comes to The Refuge Ranch and the new landscaping is soaking it all in!

Every year, @crossfitcentral donates 100% of the registration fees from its Iron Belle Girls Division to The Refuge for DMST. Thank you for using your platform to help girls grow up strong – and for your support!

"When I heard about The Refuge Ranch I was ALL in and I was ready to serve because I feel like those teenage years are just such impressionable years. So I am just so excited to be part of something where we can pour into these girls and allow them to heal and allow their God given purpose to come out of this tragic situation.”

Because of our partnership with the @utaustintx Charter Schools, each survivor at The Refuge Ranch will receive an individualized education plan, just one component of the Refuge Circle of Care. Whether she will be beginning or re-engaging with her education, each survivor will be taught by highly skilled faculty, staff and administrators who are trained in trauma informed care specific to child survivors of trafficking.

Thank you @austinindustries for choosing The Refuge for DMST as the beneficiary for your Austin Commercial Hotchkiss Memorial Golf Tournament. We are humbled to receive this $16,039 donation from such an incredible company!

A prayer, poem, or word of hope and strength was buried and planted with each bush, tree, plant and flower at The Refuge Ranch. As survivors begin moving into their cottages, we pray that they feel the love and care that has gone into every detail to make The Refuge Ranch a beautiful place. Thank you to all of those who have put in many long, hot summer days beautifying the lands so that survivors feel at home as soon as they arrive.

A big thank you to @arbonnecharity for the $27,636 in donated Arbonne products and the additional $7,500 worth of products from @arbonne Be the Light Nation —plus all the work you did on the hot August day to fully stock each of the bathrooms for the 48 survivors who will call The Refuge Ranch home. Ya'll are amazing!!

Even though the inner walls have since been sheet-rocked over, your prayers and words of strength and encouragement will forever be a part of The Refuge Ranch.

“'I didn’t know what I could do, but I wanted these girls to know that we care and that they are worthy of real love,' Mechura said. 'It made me so sad to know girls my age and younger had to go through this.'”
