Recipient Highlight: Engedi Refuge

An oasis, a sanctuary, safe haven or refuge.  A place of safety and protection. This is Engedi.

Engedi Refuge is "healing the past, redeeming the present, and changing the future."

A restorative program for women who have survived sexual exploitation and trafficking, Engedi Refuge offers them:

  1. Safe Housing
  2. Holistic Restoration
  3. Education

With the financial gift from N2GIVES, Engedi is furthering their trauma-informed care. They deliver this care using a trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy model that involves individual counseling, group therapy, and a number of additional wrap-around services. These services require well-trained and professional staff. The gift helps the organization ri ensure they are able to retain and attract the high-caliber professionals needed to continue offering their excellent restorative care.

Their passion to see women restored is evident in all that they put their hands to. I am constantly inspired by Lea and Aaron’s humility, integrity and zeal to ensure they are giving their best, constantly learning and I am honored to be in this fight with them.
