A mission group from Central Michigan University called
His House refurbished 5 rooms in the shelter.
These young women did a fabulous job!!
The rooms look wonderful, and we are so thankful for their service!
I was participating in a criminal justice training last year, and I remember the exact moment I heard it… 79,000 . In 2018, there were 79,000 children who were victims of sex trafficking. 79,000 children between the ages of 10 – 16, who’d been violated and exposed to an act that would forever change their lives. I can’t tell you the thoughts that raced through my mind…sadness and disbelief. I can tell you that I felt compelled to do something.    

Abigail’s Arms has been invited by Governor Greg Abbott’s Office to participate in a North Texas collaboration designed to help child victims of sex trafficking. We are honored to play a part in saving children’s lives. 

Thank you Cooke County for your continued support and helping us DO SOMETHING!

Dear Abigail,

My elderly parents are moving to an Assisted Living facility soon and will not be able to take their household items. These items are in very good condition. Does Abigail’s Arms take donations such as these?
