What We Do
The heart of Faithful Love is to reach women who are victims of sex trafficking or sexual exploitation. Any woman who has had to sell her body in exchange for money, drugs, food, a place to sleep, or clothing has been sexually exploited. Our desire is to walk alongside these women, offering love, support, counsel, and help meet their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. We offer a safe place for women at our “drop-in” home, open during daytime hours, where they can find rest, food, a warm shower, a laundry facility, and a safe confidential place to talk.
Our newest partnership is with Gracefull Goods. Women are taught how to make beautiful jewelry and see value and pride in the pieces they make and also in themselves as they realize they are creating something that others want to purchase. Our goal is to help women see they have talents and abilities that will provide them a means to make money other than feeling like the only way is to sell their bodies. We want all women to know that they are loved and valued right where they are. They have a purpose.
Faithful Love’s heart is to bring healing and restoration to adult women who are victims or at risk of being sex trafficked, prostituted, or exploited in Southeast Georgia.
We exist to help revitalize women who are victims/at risk of sexual exploitation throughout Georgia, Florida, and Alabama. Our programs provide services that transform lives and communities through Christ-centered love and support. In connection with sex trafficking, we also find it necessary to come alongside expectant mothers and adoptive families, by continuing to support their physical and emotional needs.
