GOODS THAT EMPOWER, EST. 2017
Elijah Rising fights on the frontlines against sex trafficking in Houston, TX. In our experience of doing direct outreach and helping assist women out of sex trafficking situations and sexual exploitation, we recognized the need for solutions to help women rebuild their lives.
We would frequently encounter women wanting to leave the sex industry, but without employment, a safe place to live, childcare, etc. choosing to leave “the life” was nearly impossible.
Because of that, we tried to find places that would house the women we were finding during our outreach, but in all of Houston, there were only 8 beds dedicated to adult survivors of sex trafficking.
One day, Elijah Rising decided to start a program that would provide long-term care for adult survivors of sex trafficking who want to rebuild their lives. One of the most important programs we offer is economic empowerment through this social enterprise. Our goal is to provide employment opportunities while women are able to rebuild their lives while in our care.
Like you, Elijah Rising wants to see sex trafficking end in our generation, but most people don’t know where to start or what to do when they face this issue. We’ve provided a simple way for you to make an impact. When you purchase our candles, you become a social advocate in the fight to end sex trafficking by empowering women who are transitioning out of commercial sexual exploitation.
