History

Founded in 2001, Destiny Rescue's story began with founder and international president Tony Kirwan. While living in Thailand, Tony and his wife heard a man share how he was once invited to have sex with children.

"When I heard this story it really hit me and I knew I had to do something," Tony says. "It was at this point, I believe God put the vision of Destiny Rescue in my heart."

Today, Destiny Rescue's work has grown into a worldwide organization dedicated to rescuing children from sexual exploitation and trafficking and helping them stay free. We serve to help amplify the voices of both those who are enslaved and have been freed from abuse.

Destiny Rescue USA, Inc. is a registered 501(c)3 organization dedicated to raising awareness, funds, and talent to make possible the international work of Destiny Rescue. Our support center is located in Fort Wayne, Indiana with regional satellites around the country.

Together, our family of speakers, staff, volunteers, church and business partners, and supporters fight tirelessly to bring the world one step closer to our vision.
