Rejuvenating Women | Together Freedom |Omaha, NE
Rejuvenating women is a faith-based, non-profit organization committed to providing hope and restoration to those enslaved in human trafficking. We are committed to developing trusted relationships with the girls and women who are so deeply wounded. Through Bible studies, individual and group mentoring, free licensed counseling and a long-term residential program with holistic trauma informed care…women can be freed and find a safe and loving family environment to heal in.
We work to increase community awareness and coordinate the identification of human trafficking, assist in community education, advocacy, provision of culturally and linguistically sensitive victim services, and efforts to ensure the investigation and prosecution of human traffickers if needed. We have partnered with several agencies and organizations; including all divisions of law enforcement, in order to better support and help prostituted women and girls escaping violence.
In our own community, women and girls often suffer from violence, shame, sexual exploitation, high anxiety, trauma, feelings of unworthiness, anger and resentment. This occurs even toward others who are often members of their own family. Rejuvenating women is a community of people dedicated to breaking down barriers of shame and guilt. We do this by raising awareness of human trafficking in Nebraska and investing in the lives of girls and women enslaved in this horrific crime on an individual basis. Everything that we do is filtered through a Biblical lens. We believe that faith, prayer, and biblical truth have a unique ability to transform lives. Although faith is the reason that “we do what we do”, we assist female victims and survivors of human trafficking regardless of their race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, age, ancestry, disability, handicapped status, veteran status, marital status, or political affiliation.
RW values all women no matter their background or beliefs.
