The mission of Elijah Rising is to end sex trafficking through prayer, awareness, intervention, and restoration.
Elijah Rising is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to end sex trafficking through prayer, awareness, intervention, and restoration.
Elijah Rising was founded in 2012 as a prayer gathering that focused on ending sex trafficking in Houston. Across Houston women and girls were being sold for sex, but there was little outcry. Elijah Rising began hosting Van Tours and showing the public the injustice happening across our city.
Elijah Rising also leads volunteers on Interventions in Houston and the surrounding areas multiple times a month. Through outreach into the brothels, sexually oriented businesses, and streets Elijah Rising provides women with resources to leave the sex industry.
As Elijah Rising’s mission expanded a new facet was added with the addition of our Restorative Care Program. Our restorative care program provides housing, trauma-informed counseling, educational resources, life skills training, and transferable job skills to help survivors of sex trafficking live an empowered life.
