WHO WE ARE

Treasured Vessels Foundation is devoted to providing a safe place for healing and growth. We have a passion for restoring purpose and value to the perfectly imperfect.

TVF longs for a community, a country and world where people are free from enslavement. We desire for people to learn to look past brokenness and cracks on the outside and reveal the treasure inside.

We seek

The Who Behind Our What

We look forward to the day our doors are open and we have a place for these girls to go and receive the long term, residential care they need. Each bed in each home represents a life that deserves freedom and healing, and they are the reason we are doing what we are doing.

We are building a secure community of ‘tiny’ homes on 5 acres.

We will house up to 60 adolescent girls who have been recovered from domestic sex trafficking.

We will provide long term, comprehensive, holistic therapy.

Our Founder

Alicia Bush

Alicia Bush is a native Texan, born and raised in Texarkana. From there she traveled to The University of North Texas and earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with a minor in Biology/Chemistry. Having considered medical school, Alicia had a leaning for the healing arts. Thus, she positioned herself in surgical device sales. This placed her in the operating room every day. She distinguished herself from her peers by her profound caring for each individual patient’s best care. It was this characteristic that gained the trust and respect of surgeons across north Texas. And thus she rose to be a top ten salesperson nationwide year after year.

Alicia was always able to compartmentalize her professional and personal life. In her personal life she became the wife of a successful custom home builder, mother of three, and dedicated leader in her church. When the demands of these roles increased, she was unequivocal in making the decision to resign her sales position in 2014. With time to homeschool her children and expand her role as a worship leader, she also listened intently to a calling placed on her heart. Out of this was founded Treasured Vessels Foundation, a 501(c)3 not for profit corporation.

The mission of Treasured Vessels is to build residential treatment facilities for underage girls rescued from sex trafficking.
