  • Hands out contact cards with Leslie’s personal number to call when they’re ready to leave the streets
  • Prays with each woman

X% of our women come from referrals from law enforcement and healthcare professionals. Sacred Beginnings is a trusted partner because of our experience and effectiveness.



Rescued from the street, victims move to Sacred Beginnings’ transition home. Since 2005, Sacred Beginnings has served 500 women and currently houses 8 women in our transition home in Grand Rapids. It’s led and staffed by survivors, providing a safe place to heal—physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

Our holistic approach includes:

  • Detox through partnering organizations
  • Trauma counseling with certified social workers
  • One-on-one peer mentoring with a fellow survivor
  • Group therapy
  • Life skills coaching
  • Optional Bible study
  • Education and career counseling
