Rescue: Direct Action to Redirect a Life

How We Change Lives

When we have done the research, made contact, and figured out the safest way to help someone in need, we take direct action. Our volunteers on the rescue team bring the survivor to a safe place, free from their captors.

Rescue is considered the first stage in the process of recovery, providing a starting point for victims to become survivors who thrive in society.

We believe in teaching the skills necessary to live in the world, rather than simply providing benefits with no training on how to navigate the systems and challenges the world can pose.

But that is just the first step. Our program takes place in three stages:

Rescue

Rehabilitation

Reintegration

In Need of Immediate Help

We keep women and their children together.

If you need immediate help and rescue, please call us at 1-833-4NEW-DAY or e-mail us at info@rahabsdaughters.org. Families are welcome.

If you are not in the Chicagoland area, you can see if we have a chapter near you. If there is no local chapter of Rahab’s Daughters near you, we can find help for you.

Providing Basic Needs and A Secure Environment

Together with the community, we provide basic needs to the survivor like: Safety, shelter, assistance with obtaining identification, clothing of their choice, medical, dental and optical care for physical and emotional needs, counseling, and a loving, secure environment in which to thrive.

After Rescue: Life Begins Again

There is no one dramatic escape from trafficking. After months or years of abuse and isolation, it can be challenging for the survivor to regain their confidence, break their dependence, and reacquire life skills. That’s where the next steps come in.

Rehabilitation and Reintegration are our enduring commitment to survivors. We’re here to help them find their strength to break the cycle of abuse and entrapment. Together, we can help them get their lives back.
