    Social Stigmas of Victims

    As an English teacher, I feel that it is my duty and my pleasure to become a complete literary nerd with the classics.  However, I somehow did not read many of them in high school or college.  That is probably some kind of system failure.  Although, maybe the detriment of...

  • November Director’s Message

    Greetings Redeemed Family, I hope everyone is settling into a great season of Harvest and Thanksgiving celebrations!  I was so excited when I chose to write this month’s Director’s Message because November is also when we celebrate those who have served.  On my 18th birthday I went to the post...

    Finding Solace in Self Care

    I started my journey with Redeemed Ministries as an overnight staff member at the Assessment Center (30-day shelter), and I am proud to say that I recently began working as a Resident Advisor at the Sparrow House (safe house). My time serving at Redeemed has been filled with both numerous...

    Resource Recommendation: Texas Human Trafficking Mapping Project

    Welcome to the resource recommendation! At Redeemed, we want to equip you to be an informed anti-trafficking advocate, and the resource recommendation is our way to guide you to current information on trafficking.

    In the Image of God

  • October Director’s Message

    Full Circle Seven years ago, on October 10, 2010, Redeemed Ministries opened the doors of the Sparrow House. We welcomed two survivors with open arms. We were willing servants armed with hopes, dreams, prayers and God’s word. We reflected on Acts 26:16-18 “…I have a job for you. I’ve handpicked...

  • Dream with hope, Redeemed Ministries

    Jesus Invites Us to Dream with Hope

    God has placed a beautiful dream in my heart, a dream so big it hurts to contemplate. I long to see captives set free in Jesus’ name, for women who’ve only known oppression to feel the warmth of their Father’s love on their radiant faces. I long to see God’s word...

    Grasping God’s Tangible Love

    I am beyond proud to say that I was one of the lucky few to be employed full time at the Redeemed Ministries’ Assessment Center. The Assessment Center was merely a 30-day shelter to some, but to the volunteers and the staff who put their heart and soul into it, it...
