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 appreciate their humility, dedication, work ethic, knowledge, experience, authenticity, and trustworthiness.

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.
