What We Do

Rejuvenating Women is a non­profit organization providing hope and restoration to those whom have suffered trauma from human trafficking. We are committed to developing long-lasting relationships with deeply wounded women by loving each and everyone right where she is in life. We raise awareness of both labor and sex trafficking in the community as well as invest in the lives of victims and survivors who are living in our residential home and those participating in the programs. Types of Programs and Services we offer: Short-Term Housing: Our short-term transitional housing is available for survivors for up to 90-days. Our short-term housing assistance offers many services which are available to the resident including case management and trauma therapy. Short-term participants will have the opportunity to get connected with other survivors and be teamed up with a mentor. Long-Term Housing Program: Rejuvenating Women offers an 18 to 24-month sanctuary for women age 19+ at the Restored Wings home. The Residential Program empowers women of human trafficking and sexual exploitation to discover their true identities in a safe and loving environment that will allow them to achieve economic freedom and spiritual growth, in addition to attaining physical, mental and emotional healing. The Restored Wings Program is a long-term program with four distinct phases. Each phase completed is a huge accomplishment and graduates will be rewarded with a celebration dinner, certificate of completion and the opportunity to enter the next phase if they desire to do so. Completion of all four phases will result in a special graduation ceremony. Phase 1: RW Intensive Trauma Recovery Program This phase starts with rest (Day 1-7 approximately). Residents are encouraged to rest and get familiar with their new environment. They will receive a tour, complete initial paperwork, review and sign the resident handbook, complete assessments, meet their Case Manager. Safety is a top priority. This phase is to ensure each woman’s immediate needs of safety are met. Phase 2: RW Internship Program This phase will focus on growth. The resident will be actively practicing the new concepts they have been learning such as: healthy boundaries, distress tolerance and mindfulness techniques, work through triggers and unhealthy urges. The resident will continue to review their goals and set new long-term goals with their Case Manager as they continue to grow and move towards change. The resident’s schedule will be adjusted as the internship which will reduce class time. Phase 3: RW Transitional Program This phase is focused on consistency. The resident will be able to distinguish between thoughts and feelings, replace lies with God’s truth, and recognize their own unhealthy thought patterns, emotional regulation, an awareness of your strengths and spiritual gifts. The resident will focus on the next steps of their life such as employment or education and housing. The resident will be able to find a job that is approved by the leadership team and their therapist. In this Phase the resident will be able to work work towards obtaining a vehicle. Phase 4: Independent Living Program This phase is focused on maintaining the new life the resident has formed. They will be able to make significant steps towards furthering their education and career, independently providing their own transportation, as well as achieve their own housing. The resident may take on leadership roles & tasks in the RW home.

Rejuvenating Women is moving forward with a property that will be a refuge for child sex trafficking survivors. The Restored Wings Ranch will be an acreage that will focus on recovery from the many different levels of complex trauma after sex trafficking. The property we are seeking should be at least 10 acres with leans or outbuildings for cows and horses to graze and shelter for protection. It is proven that animal assisted therapy onsite heals the many facets of trauma from within. There is something to be said about having a recovery program onsite that includes therapy animals. BUT...there is one problem, we need funding for this property and YOU can be a part of the healing that will take place at a peaceful and safe sanctuary.

Once we close on the right property and the God-given one that RW as a nonprofit can afford, your donation will provide school supplies and curriculum, clothing, new beds and bedding, gas for transportation and food for our farm animals used for onsite assisted therapy.

Won't you be a part of the solution to help end child sex trafficking? You can give here, or by mail to P.O. Box 207, Boys Town, NE 68010. We also accept stock donations and can email us for information at
