Engedi Refuge is a restorative program for women who have suffered sexual exploitation and trafficking. The ministry provides safe housing and comprehensive therapy to those struggling to overcome the poverty, addiction, abuse and complex trauma often associated with sex trafficking.

Engedi Refuge serves women from around the United States including many (nearly 50%) who are local to Washington State.

“Every dollar bid on auction items, and every dollar donated goes directly to victim care at Engedi,” the local nonprofit says.
