• Received 1264 NEW requests for help—737 of those requests came from abuse survivors, 460 came from people helpers (friends, family, counselors, etc.), and 67 came from pastors and church leaders. This number does not include the scores of clients already receiving our services.

CTPM's has grown over 300% over the past three years has made it extremely challenging for us to keep up with the multiple requests for help we receive each week from women here in the US and around the world. However, with your help we will now be able to add much-needed staff.
From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for being part of this vital ministry and helping us bring hope to the oppressed. You are helping to heal and change lives daily. We look forward your continued partnership.
