Crystal Sprague
Clinical Director, My Refuge House, Philippines?
Crystal Sprague has been serving as the Clinical Director of My Refuge House since the Spring of 2010. As Clinical Director, she oversees the day-to-day care of the home that provides a safe transitional placement for victims of trafficking and sexual abuse.
From a young age, Crystal has felt a deep philanthropic passion to help others. To that end, she graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington with her Master's degree in Social Work after completing her Bachelor's degree at Southwestern Assemblies as a double major in Church Ministries and Counseling Psychology.
Before coming to My Refuge House, Crystal gained experience in the field as an Aftercare Fellow with International Justice Mission where she supervised the writing and implementation of group therapy and curriculum for victims of human trafficking. She also worked on policy and procedures at local shelters in the Philippines. For more than three years, Crystal served as a houseparent at All Church Home For Children, a home for children with behavioral challenges that prevent them from long-term placements. Her experience as a social work intern at Mosaic Family Services prepared her for this job as she gained insight in counseling and case management to immigrant and refugee victims of abuse and trafficking.
Crystal stresses that relationship-building is crucial to the healing environment-and that's something she's teaching and driving home with the staff to ensure that relationship-building is a priority.
Crystal describes her experience of helping rescued girls in these words: "When a girl first comes into the building or into aftercare, you can see the despair and hopelessness in her eyes, and then you watch how she changes when she realizes she is surrounded by people who love her, people who believe in her. You watch her life slowly begin to change. When I've seen girls in those initial stages and then get to see them progress... it's simply amazing!"
