Redeem and Restore Center exists to love, restore, and support women escaping from domestic sexual exploitation or trafficking. We exist to help women discover hope and a future- to truly be human again!
Awareness leads to prevention, intervention, and restoration. We are proactive in awareness outreach that educates others of the who, where, and why of the destructive truth of domestic sex trafficking, to change cultural norms that add to the problem, for the prevention of others becoming enslaved, equipping and leading others for outreach intervention, and that we will provide real hope and a future by restoring value to survivors through housing services. We are igniting hope for those who have been enslaved through our love and support, and to the community through what we can do! Once the home is fully operational, victims will be able to leave Redeem and Restore Center and be true survivors, and overcomers.
OUR ORGANIZATION & VALUES
Redeem and Restore Center is a public benefit 501c3 nonprofit charity founded in September 2013. We recognize that we can provide all the needed awareness, outreach, services, and care for the victims of sex trafficking by building great community partnerships and collaboration with existing organizations throughout the state.
“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.” Proverbs 31: 8-9
We are committed to success in each aspect of our mission to those entrapped in the ‘no life’ of trafficking and prostitution. Our staff will love unconditionally, help restore brokenness to wholeness, provide ongoing support, and giving empowerment through each step of their journey.
The responsibility that is needed in caring for these women will take a strong foundation of integrity with each person directly involved with them. It will always take teamwork of vetted staff and volunteers to be consistent and reliable. We will provide structure, safety, and quality in each program, but respecting their individuality.
We are a Christian based organization and we will serve each person without requiring them to embrace our beliefs. We will demonstrate the love of Jesus in practical ways: providing a safe home, food, clothing, access to medical care, counseling, educational opportunities, and vocational training.
1 John 3:18 says “Dear children let us not love with words or tongue, but with action and in truth.”
We will provide the opportunities for transformation, and they will take each step as they are ready. When they come to the steps of moving out on their own, we will continue our support role for another year as they build new relationships away from the Center. Then we can help ensure their future successes as they continue making steps forward.
We continue to seek to have more collaboration with existing ministries and organizations. We then can assist each other in providing all the needed services and care for the victims of sex trafficking.
We are committed to treat each person that we partner with and those we serve, with respect and dignity. We will be diligent in using all resources that we are given effectively, responsibly, and with accountability in bringing restoration and new life to exploited women and girls. We believe in integrity, honesty and transparency for a safe and ethical environment.
