I love Redeemed Ministries! It has been such a joy and honor to serve there as a volunteer. The leadership and staff is beyond amazing! They are so sweet! The love of Jesus shines brightly in and through all that they do! They all work so selflessly and wholeheartedly to do what they can to bring greater awareness of sex trafficking to the community, training others on how they can help make a difference, and offering hope, encouragement, healing and restoration to the precious ladies who come into their care.

Volunteering with Redeemed has been one of my best experiences during the pandemic. Bobbie, the executive director, was gracious enough to let me help out with graphic design for the gala and Mary Fraire, the director of residential living, allowed me to teach yoga nidra to some of the residents of the Sparrow House. It has been such a positive experience because they were so appreciative of anything I had to offer. They were also able to work with my busy schedule. I would encourage anyone to consider giving time to this organization that has helped so many women get back on track with their lives.

Hello every one my I want to use this medium to appreciate Dr tunde a great spell caster for helping me retrieving back my relationship with my ex lover when he ended and turned back on me for quite a long time now (6 months ago) He performed a spell for me and within 48 hours after the spell had been cast I receive a text from my ex saying that he is sorry for the pains and tears that he had caused me and that he will not do such thing to me again in his life. I was surprised but later accepted him back again. Anyone that is in the same line of problem or different one that want to contact a spell caster should happily contact Dr tunde now on this email address:babatundesolutioncentre1@gmail. com or you can contact him through his whatsapp line +2348143581382

I have volunteered for Redeemed Ministries for a number of years. During that time I have had the pleasure of watching many young ladies being transformed from the inside out. They have come to value themselves and others, and have become loving, giving, contributing parts of our communities. I have had the opportunity to attend many graduations celebrating each woman’s successful completion of the year or more that they have spent working in the program. Additionally, I have been able to spend many weekends with them in their house as they relax from a hard week of the studies and duties that are required of them. On Sunday, we attend church and the heartfelt signing and worshipping I hear from them warms my heart. This organization is making the world a better place.

Redeemed is such fantastic organization with a great heart for helping survivors of sex-trafficking. As a volunteer, I have seen first hand all of the hard work that goes into spreading awareness, educating the community of the steps taken to help survivors recover and the actual work that goes into the trauma-informed holistic healing program. Look forward to continue supporting Redeemed until everyone is free!

I became aware of Redeemed Ministries when my church sponsored a study regarding human trafficking several years ago. Since then I volunteered for special events and donated funds or equipment to assist the women in the program. This is an outstanding outreach program that is desperately needed to empower these women who have escaped the bondage of human trafficking. The staff and volunteers are deeply committed to this ministry.

I recently led Redeemed's first "virtual" fundraiser to help support their mission of restoring the lives of sex trafficked women in Houston. Working with Bobbie Mark, Executive Director of Redeemed, is always a pleasure. She and her entire staff and teams of volunteers will stop at nothing to help these women.

With overall "giving" down due to COVID-19, raising money to support their Sparrow House safe house operations is crucial. I was in awe of Redeemed's commitment to learning how to pivot from in-person events to a virtual platform. It was a steep learning curve but we did it and the volunteers were truly amazing.

If you haven't heard of Reedeemed, please check them out. They offer safe and sustainable long-term residential care with trauma-informed programming for women exploited in sex trafficking.

They have a Golf for Good fundraising tournament coming up in 2021, so go check them out now to see how you can get involved!

I started volunteering with Redeemed back in 2016. They are an incredible organization that is focused on servitude and love as they help women rescued from trafficking get back their identity in Christ and start a new life. The trauma informed care and types of therapy they offer the ladies, really make a difference in their healing and restoration. I have nothing but great things to say about Redeemed Ministries and the work they do, day in and day out! I highly recommend this non profit organization and will continue to support them any way I can.

Dennis and Bobbie are the real deal. They have been committed to helping people through the hard and challenging journey of restoration. They have been in this longer than most and they have a highly regarded reputation that has stood the test of time. They fight hard and love even harder.

I chose to support Redeemed not only because of their mission, but their leadership behind the mission. Dennis and Bobbie Mark are amazing individuals who were called to serve in the darkest of places to bring hope and restoration. They have personally sacrificed much to this cause and it shows. They have grown the ministry from helping a few to training and helping thousands nationwide. Really, worldwide. They are excellent stewards of everything given to support the mission. Highly recommend this nonprofit.

I first started with Redeemed as a volunteer and loved everything they stood for so I decided to take a leap of faith and im now employed with this amazing ministry. To be able to witness first hand the transformation these ladies go through and how much heart they each have to no longer live in bondage is so powerful to witness. Its because of Redeemed and how much each staff member fights the battles along side these ladies that make this not just a job, but its family. I will always fight for those still sitting in silence!

I started as a volunteer with Redeemed 8 years ago and have since become an employee, a donor, and a friend of this organization! The love and care that is shown to the women who come through the doors of Redeemed Ministries is unmatched, and the miracles I've had the privilege of witnessing will stay will me forever.

I can't say enough good things about this ministry. They are on the street seeking the lost, they are dealing with the problem at the political level both locally and internationally, they foster these women through the process of healing and wholeness, grounding them in scripture and life skills, they teach and train volunteers. And they do it with sacrificial love and a passion for sharing the gospel. We were blessed to serve a tiny part by hosting a contingent of officials from Tajikistan who came to learn more about fighting human trafficking in their own country. I later took their volunteer training - excellent - and it helped me be more effective in another ministry that serves a high proportion of women at risk. A five-star ministry.

This organization is quality in their work. So many suffer in Human Trafficking and particularly often overlooked American women in the Sex Trafficking arena. Their focus and maricultous humanitarian and holistic recovery practices warrant high rankings. High integrity, careful management of funds, efficiently and an unrelenting focus on the right care to recover the women.

They take the process of recovering women who have been brainwashed and culturally isolated in extreme fear to reintroduce them in to society when most are trafficked as they begin their teens and have no skills to live without being dependent on the traffickers.

They have an 80% success rate 4 times better than most shelters. Their experience and expertise can change the way we help these victims escape to a healthy and fruitful independent life.

Redeemed Ministries is devoted to serving and loving those who have been trafficked in the sex industry. They help educate others and share stories to shine a light on the darkness. They pour out their lives all day, everyday to restore life to those who have been exploited and robbed of their humanity.

My experience as a donor of resource to this organization comes easily, because of the impact I have observed them make in the lives of young women. Giving, all in, to create healthy bridges for survivors of human trafficking. Something often understood as an international cruel and devastating criminal trade, that ravishes the lives of young ladies, is also happening in the U.S. The survivors of this socially ignored crime are often unseen and desperately in need of the work these people do. They execute effectively, on mission, in a very intentional and sober way, with great heart and compassion.

Supporting where I can, and observing the difficult work of redemption of lives is a personally fulfilling investment for me. As I learned more about the atrocities, I have felt that I have somehow contributed to it, in the past, by ignorance and inaction. Personally, speaking up more for lives that needed my help, as well as just seeing what is going on is more than wisdom, it becomes a social duty. We are compelled to call it out. As a constant international traveler I have seen clues of this crime everywhere and now feel compelled to highlight it. In this transition Redeemed has been an important educator, and transitioned from duty to an honor to contribute to and an easy partnership to take part in. When donating you feel privelaged to be a part of the work, in an unserved and hidden area of our society that needs expertise and time you will never have to give. You can take part in making an impact, through whatever contributions that we do have to offer. Give.

Redeemed Ministries is an excellent organization who are effectively using ever donated dollar or item to cause recovery and redemption opportunities for the stolen potential in highly valuable and heartily destroyed young lives at the hands of so many. It is a beautiful picture of God’s heart for restoring the ravaged hearts of humanity.

I love what these people have achieved and recommend support for what they will do, as people learn who they are and the great stewards they are of the investments made in them.

Take part. Raise your hand. Defend. Protect.

I had the pleasure of serving alongside some of the most passionate volunteers and trauma-informed staff in the US for the three years I was with Redeemed as a safe house resident advisor and volunteer coordinator. One of my favorite parts of Redeemed is their regular trauma-informed training provided to help better equip volunteers and staff. This work is so important, and the truth is that it can be hard. The dedication that Dennis and Bobbie (a married couple that serves in key leadership roles in Redeemed) have shown in laying down their lives for Christ and the ladies they serve has impacted not only the women Redeemed serves, but also countless volunteers and community members who have seen and been inspired by their passion.

Volunteering and working for Redeemed Ministries is one of the best things I have ever done! I love getting to know and love on the women we serve alongside the other staff members. The leadership team at Redeemed, especially Dennis and Bobbie, are some of the most dedicated people I have ever met. The work done here is not the most glamorous and we may not always see change when we want to, but even the smallest steps forward are very rewarding. The brave women in our aftercare program are inspiring as they overcome their circumstances and choose to make better lives for themselves. I thank God for the work He's done through Redeemed Ministries, and I feel blessed to be associated with them.
