At Grove City Church of the Nazarene
The Ohio Women's Refuge offers a new beginning to women leaving the sex
industry. There is no charge to guests as they choose to live and work together as a family
towards healing. We are a faith-based non-profit, although not licensed as a treatment
facility by the state of Ohio, our dedicated staff and volunteers utilize a highly successful
curriculum and mentoring approach to help each guest progress through their unique
challenges. We ask each woman to commit to a minimum three-month stay, with
many women choosing to stay longer.
During their time at Ohio Women's Refuge, women develop and work on a life plan,
focusing on physical and emotional health, spiritual growth, education, and life skills necessary
for a stable and productive life. Our desire is for each woman to identify goals she wants to achieve
while in the ministry. We will actively seek to help her make strides towards the accomplishment of those goals. As women complete their time with us, they have the opportunity to serve other women in the industry through ministry internships, or they may choose to pursue resources towards further education and stable employment.
Ohio Women's Refuge partners with local resources in the surrounding communities to best serve each woman
through counseling services, medical resources, educational opportunities and more. Curriculum is customized for each woman to best prepare her to accomplish her goals. The following list includes some of the topics and resources addressed while in the ministry.
