The Story of How We Started Doing Restorative Care

In this new episode of the Elijah Rising Podcast, we share the miracle story of how we started doing restorative care. In the beginning, we didn’t think restorative care was something we could do, but due to a series of events, we began to realize this is an essential service to truly help women who have survived of human trafficking.

The creation of the Restorative Campus was incredibly collaborative! Churches, donors, and volunteers, hundreds of them, have all had a part to play in making restorative care possible. In this time of COVID-19, despite all of the interruptions to our usual work, the doors of the Elijah Rising Restoration Campus remain open. Women who have survived trafficking continue their healing journey as the Elijah Rising staff has prioritized their well-being above all else.
