Rahab is devoted to rescuing and restoring women who have been trafficked. They do this through a variety of programs including bu tnot limited to prison visits, pen pal ministry, Bible studies both in and out of prison, Soup ‘n’ Shop (where women can come from the jail for a few hours and have a home cooked meal, shop in the boutique, and hear about Christ’s love for them), prayer walks, and Strip Club outreaches.



Rahab has several monetary ways to help with their ministries. A family, individual, or life group can contribute financially to support the operation of their safe house, to help build the new safe house for teens, or other programming. If you would like to contribute financially please follow this link. If you would like to give to one of the many physical needs of the ministry such as food, personal care items, clothing, and other items please email Laurie.
