Who We Serve
Eden House serves adult survivors of human and sex trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation. Since opening our doors, Eden House has served survivors ranging in age from their early twenties into their fifties.
While no two stories are the same, many survivors who come into our program have experienced some form of abuse in their childhood homes. Some have experienced early homelessness, and some have pasts as runaway children, leading to lives on the streets. Our residents have often endured significant trauma and arrive at Eden House from prison, rehabilitation facilities, shelters, referrals from law-enforcement agencies, or directly from the streets. The majority of these survivors were sexually abused between the ages of 7-11, started using alcohol or drugs by 13, entered prostitution as teenagers, and have been arrested nearly a hundred times each. Most residents are recovering from emotional trauma, drug addiction, sexually transmitted illnesses, and other symptoms of poverty and life on the streets.
