Reaching Above Hopelessness and Brokenness, (RAHAB) is unapologetically a Christian run program. It collaborates with all sectors of society as well as with others of differing beliefs. RAHAB believes the way to combatting Human Trafficking is through Truth and Love. RAHAB is committed to presenting accurate facts in court, treating others with love and respect, having compassion and teaching others to do the same.
RAHAB Ministries, inc is teaching communities how to spot and identify human trafficking in their own backyards and how to take action against it.
By providing drop-in centers, street outreach, prison visits, and mentoring programs that engage volunteers, RAHAB is showing victims that they are seen and that there is a way out.
Starting out in 2002 after finding hope and healing of her own, founder Rebecca Moreland put her faith into action and had dreams of reaching prostituted women in seemingly hopeless situations.
By 2008 RAHAB had acquired a house in a neighborhood where prostitution ran rampant. This house provided homestyle meals, Bible Studies and encouragement for others amongst other things. In 2014 RAHAB acquired a safe house, and continued to grow from there. There are now several different locations operating under RAHAB, including a trauma informed safe house for girls aged 11-17 years old.
Looking to the future, RAHAB is focused on strengthening local efforts and documenting best practices for what they know works, and what doesn’t. They hope to create patterns within the community that can be duplicated across other communities to create a safe and whole world where we see an end to Human Trafficking.
Through this program support grant, funds from The Jensen Project will be used to fuel this continuum for survivors in the long-term housing program and as they re-enter community in the transitional living program, The Oaks. Survivors remain the focal point at all times during their time with RAHAB.
A yearly grant program, funding up to $2 Million to advance economic empowerment and housing opportunities for agencies who serve adult female survivors of human trafficking.
