The OEW vision is to offer female survivors of sex trafficking opportunities to move beyond the pains of their past, renew their strength, and begin to soar with new hope for their future.
We are committed to operating with a standard of excellence.
We are committed to survivor safety and security, allowing survivors to achieve their goals without fear.
We do not believe in an institutional type setting; we strive for a family environment built on trusting relationships developed over time.
We strongly believe that survivors have a voice and strive to empower them to make healthy choices.
OUR SURVIVOR COMMITMENT
We offer specialized programs that understand commercial sexual exploitation and model a holistic, trauma informed approach.
Although we are a faith based program, we do not discriminate or force survivors to share in our beliefs.
