Human Trafficking Information

Lily Pad Haven, Inc. The Mission of Lily Pad Haven is to care for women who have been forced into situations involving physical and/or mental exploitation and need the comfort and protection of a healing home in a loving environment to restore their body, mind and spirit.

Lily Pad Haven was formed out of a Missions Ministry of a local congregation from the Presbytery of Charlotte. Lily Pad Haven, Inc. has received financial support at the Presbytery, Synod and General Assembly level of which our initial funding was generated ‐ thanks to the amazing grant from the Thank Offering through the General Assembly Presbyterian Women. We are very thankful to have been born out of the Presbytery of Charlotte and encourage the Churches of the Presbytery to feel a sense of pride and ownership of this Ministry. Our goal in the following year is to increase the number of houses we have for our guests, increase our volunteer/mentors, and increase education to our Presbytery.


Representatives from Lily Pad Haven are very willing to speak at your local church to educate your adults and youth regarding this heinous crime and ways to help make a difference. Contact us at 704-312-2011 to schedule an event.  Visit us on the web at lilypadhaven.org
