Mission, Vision, and History
Mission: Providing hope in Christ to broken women.
RAHAB Ministries (Reaching Above Hopelessness And Brokenness) began in 2002 and was born out of a challenge made to founder, Becky Moreland, by her mentor. Starting with a small group of volunteers walking the streets of Akron to reach prostituted women, RAHAB has grown to include a drop in center, a safe house, outreach ministries that reach women in strip clubs and jails, and a ministry to minor victims of sex trafficking. Just as the prostitute Rahab from the Bible (Joshua 2) was part of the lineage of Jesus, we believe that every prostituted woman deserves the life-changing experience of realizing her worth as a priceless and beautiful Daughter of the King.
To accomplish this goal we operate in a number of focus areas with three goals always in mind, depending on where a given woman is in her journey:
- Reach - RAHAB's goal is to consistently step out of our comfort zones to bring the message of hope into the daily chaos that these women experience.
- Rescue - RAHAB comes alongside victims to build a healthy relationship, provide a safe environment, and present opportunities to regain control of their lives.
- Redeem - RAHAB aims to provide practical needs while always pointing the women we work with toward a relationship with Jesus Christ.
