In 2014, 58:12 Rescue was formed by Larry and Kendra Kaufman and a core team of people from Grace Church in Berlin, Ohio. The mission of 58:12 Rescue is to provide Christ-centered hope and healing for vulnerable women and children everywhere. 58:12 Rescue has helped over 400 women, hosted 40 women and 27 children in the home over a period of 1,460 nights.
In 2016, Grace Church (Berlin) commissioned a team of missionaries to live in Pattaya, Thailand. After three years of language study, networking, and cultural adaptation, the team is in the process of launching a 58:12 Thailand campus aimed at bringing hope and healing to vulnerable children ages 0-18. With the addition of a Thailand campus, 58:12 Global was formed to align mission, communication, and resources.
58:12 Rescue and 58:12 Thailand operate as campuses of 58:12 Global.

“I was born and raised here in Holmes County and have lived here all my life. I am Amish. I was in an abusive marriage and knew I had to get out because it was no longer safe. From the first meeting with the staff at 58:12, I knew this was a safe place with safe and genuine people. I came from a place where I was belittled and condemned every day. I was able to find my voice, here at 58:12, and felt heard for the first time in a very long time. I’ve met people who believe in me and remind me to believe in myself. I was able to stop living in fear and truly rest. I am now able to grow into the person God created me to be. 58:12 matters so much to me and is so much deeper than just a safe roof over my head. They helped me get back on my feet by helping me find a job, a church, a circle of support, and freedom. To anyone who is in a toxic or abusive relationship, get out. 58:12 will help because they genuinely care about you. I didn’t know how I was going to support my children and myself when I left home but the support I have found at 58:12 is indescribable. It is so nice to have a place like this close to home because I could still keep my support system I came with. I didn't feel cut off and the area is still familiar but yet safe. Everyone needs a lifeline sometimes, and 58:12 is mine."
