Restoring Value, Trust, Security & Hope
“I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin… Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance.”
– Psalm 32:5, 7 WME Partners & Supporters,
In our most recent WORLD EVANGELISM magazine, we ran a story on a Dallas-area shelter for women recovering from abuse, sexual exploitation and addiction. Partnering with this facility is one of WME’s newest missions. Due to the need to protect the safety of those in the program, we cannot provide photos that reveal the facility’s location or the women’s identities. All we can do is explain the issues and define the needs.
THEWOMENWHO HAVE BEEN PROTECTED AND NURTURED BY THISCHRISTIAN, FAITH- BASED PROGRAM COME FROMA VARIETY OF BACKGROUNDS. They are from all over the United States; they are of all races and ages. Some have been abused by family or boyfriends; others come from the world of prostitution. Many suffer from crippling drug addictions. Some would have died without the intervention of this program. ALL THESEWOMEN HAD NOWHERE TO TURN AND THEIR ONLY REMAINING HOPE TO FIND COMPASSION, HEALING AND RESTORATION FOR THEIR SHATTERED LIVESWAS THIS SHELTER.
This shelter has a success rate of more than 90%. Most of these women leave with an unshakeable faith that is the foundation for new lives. Their song of deliverance echoes the words of David, “Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped. Our help is in the name of the LORD.”

But even with the documented success of the program, one need had yet to be addressed. If a woman wanted to attend the program but had dependent children, there was no place for her because current facilities could not house families. Many single mothers who longed for a second chance could not bring themselves to leave families behind to attend the program, fearing for the safety of their children.
HERE’S THE GREAT NEWS.GOD HAS SUPPLIED AWAY OF ESCAPE FOR THESEWOMEN AND CHILDREN. A SMALL APARTMENT BUILDINGWAS DONATED FOR OUTREACH TO THESE FAMILIES, AND REMODELING IS CURRENTLY UNDERWAY.Once completed, the building will house 16 women along with their children. The families will stay together as they address the mental, spiritual and physical issues created by abuse or addiction. They will remain in a supportive, safe environment until each mother is ready to live independently. For some
Bruised and battered, they look to us for hope and help!
that might be six months, for others a year or more; but none will leave until they have been given the best chance for a future filled with hope in the Lord.
