To provide a safe residential environment for sexually exploited women, offering spiritual, mental, emotional, & physical support services.
A place of grace.
The WellHouse is a nonprofit, faith-based and Christ centered organization devoted to the rescue and recovery of women who are being sexually exploited. Based in Birmingham, Alabama, we reach out to victims of sex trafficking across the southeastern United States. In our program, victims are given shelter, food, clothing, spiritual guidance, and other necessary support. In the care of the WellHouse, exploited women are empowered to reclaim their stolen lives.
A victim is a person who needs to be rescued.
A survivor is someone who has been rescued.
An overcomer is someone who has been healed.
