What Is Eden House?
Eden House will be an 18 month program that provides 24/7 residential care to survivors of commercial sexual exploitation. Eden House will welcome adult women who are ready for change and open to healing – body, mind, and soul.
The program will offer a safe home, mental and physical assessments and care, therapy, case management, educational guidance and opportunities, life skills training, job coaching, healthy community, and spiritual support. Qualified staff, trained volunteers, and multiple service partners will come together to walk alongside our residents in their healing journey.
Philosophy of Care
Trauma-informed care is grounded in and directed by a thorough understanding of the multi-layered effects of trauma in a person’s life. Our program will provide participants one-on-one therapy sessions and group therapy with selected licensed counselors who are specifically trained in trauma therapy. Our staff will be trained annually on best trauma-informed techniques. We will also seek to actively resist re-traumatization.
We will value the uniqueness and strengths of each resident. We believe in empowering each woman to be her own advocate in identifying her strengths, pursuing God’s purpose for her, and creating long-term goals. Survivors deserve to be heard, regain agency to their decision making, and to own their healing journeys.
We believe that every individual has human dignity and can have hope for an abundant future. We will care for the whole person: Mind, body, and spirit. We will seek to provide excellent care that will lead to her growth and healing in every aspect of her life.
We believe that there is no “one size fits all” approach to helping women find healing and growth. Because of this, every resident will work through an Individualized Care Plan. We are committed to helping her become all that God has created her to be.
We believe that true healing is found through experiencing God’s love given to us in Jesus Christ. We seek to share this healing love in everything we do. Spiritual support will be woven into every aspect of the program.
