Ways You Can Help
Give time and expertise:
Volunteers make priceless contributions and lower operating costs. A RAHAB volunteer may be the first person to pour into a woman or child’s life without asking for anything in return.
Keep the work going:
Our valued donors don’t just keep the lights on but also pay the people who devote themselves to leading our efforts. Operating costs are greatest at our safe house, where we have the same sort of household expenses most families do, along with the costs of providing tailored case plans for each survivor and addressing the effects of intense physical and psychological trauma.
Generous supporters over the years have partnered with us to keep the work going. As our ministry grows, and we offer services to more and more women and children throughout Northeast Ohio and beyond, continued funding is even more vital.
We need advocates in the community and ambassadors to share the RAHAB story. Follow our social media accounts, and spread the word through your networks.
The biggest way you can advocate is to pray. If you pray, pray for Truth to triumph and for Love to win. Pray to know how you may be called to join in God’s Story of setting people free.
Truth and Love are the keys to ending human trafficking. RAHAB provides cutting-edge, trauma-informed care. Follow our social media accounts on Facebook and Instagram and subscribe to our blog, podcast, and eNewsletter to stay up to date with all the information you need to help fight and eradicate human trafficking.
Ready to Volunteer?
Volunteers join in God’s Story of setting people free by taking action against sex trafficking in concrete ways: through mentoring, fund raising, retreat planning, awareness raising, capturing stories, visiting with incarcerated survivors, making meals, doing Street and Strip Club Outreach, writing letters through our pen pal ministry, organizing supplies, cleaning our office and Drop-In centers, sorting donations, teaching skills and Bible Studies, and serving at Drop-In centers.
Currently, we’re in particular need of mentors for our girls, Outreach volunteers, and ambassadors to help share the RAHAB story. Because our mentorship program is in such demand, we need more people to step out in faith to build intentional relationships so that we don’t need to turn any children away. We partner each mentor with only one child and will walk beside you and prepare you for this important role of going after the one, just like Jesus did.
Volunteers who interact directly with the survivors we serve complete RAHAB Essentials Training and are screened through a volunteer application and background check.
If you’re someone who has been a part of RAHAB for a while, please consider whether you might be willing to represent us by hosting a table at a community event, speaking to missions committees, or accompanying and supporting a survivor who feels called to tell her story.
