Miracles is a 501(c)(3) charity run by a husband and wife team, Michelle and Tyrone Walker. Miracles Outreach has provided foster care and other services to more than 3000 youth and families in Florida since 2000. They focus on children who are homeless, have been abused or were victims of Human Trafficking between the ages of twelve and seventeen. They provide a caring, nurturing, safe home to children that go to them from child welfare agencies throughout Florida and often arrive severely troubled because of the situations that caused them to enter foster care.
Unfortunately the Tampa Bay area is one of the top destinations for human trafficking and the problem is shockingly widespread in the U.S. According to the State Department, tens of thousands of mostly girls and some boys are trafficked into the U.S. each year! Most of these children are “purchased” by U.S. citizens to be sexually abused and enslaved. The average age of the girls is 14. It’s a tragic and sickening problem.
Any donations, large or small, helps the kids!
