A victim of molestation and abuse at age 4, Semadar was introduced as a pre-teen.
it starts with caring
RAHAB provides direct services to broken women. The majority of our resources go toward reaching these women in whatever situation they find themselves in. Our outreach teams walk the streets of Akron every week ministering and praying with the women we meet. These outreach teams also visit all Akron-area strip clubs once a month to develop relationships with the dancers.
It is only those who find themselves in helpless situations who need rescued. The word rescue requires intervention, although rescuing a woman from the streets is very different from rescuing someone who is drowning, for example. Familiarity, emotional ties, self-image, and fear keep victims of sexual exploitation from embracing hope. RAHAB aids in the long-term rescuing process by being a consistent voice reminding them that they are worth rescuing.
stories with meaning
RAHAB aims to provide every practical need while always pointing the women we work with toward a relationship with Jesus Christ. He alone is the redeemer. We encourage and support women in reclaiming their lives. We’ve seen women get custody of their children back, graduate college, and get great jobs. We’ve seen women go from believing they are worthless to walking in confidence.
