A Team of Hope

Garland Oaks is a program of Street Hope TN. As believers of Jesus Christ, we believe every person is loved and valued by God, and sexual exploitation is wrong. We believe the Bible calls us to care for the hurting and oppressed. Our council and staff have been specially gifted and called to fight the sexual exploitation of children and offer hope to the survivors of DMST.
