Our team builds intentional relationships with women living on the streets, in isolated, one-room apartments and in the homeless shelters of the Tenderloin. BJM serves women who have been wounded in relationships that used and abused. We believe we all will find healing in relationships that value and encourage.
Once a month we open our doors to women in the community to join us for a time for fellowship, free manicures and art. This time provides an invaluable opportunity for these women who seek safety and rest in the midst of hardships. As we sit and listen to these women's stories, we build long-term relationships with them, which in turn allows them to create strong bonds of community with us and with each other.
Our healing groups respond to the needs of women in our community to find emotional and spiritual restoration and change. In groups like Chit Chat Cafe, Art for the Heart, Freedom in Forgiveness, Boundaries in Relationships and others, women learn to hear God’s voice while integrating therapy techniques with worship and prayer. Women experience God’s comfort and healing which leads to forgiveness and trauma recovery.
EdenMade provides relationship-centered care and outreach, connecting women who work in the adult entertainment industry to holistic resources, support, and referrals. We do this by handing out gift bags, coffee, and food to women who work in strip clubs. We exist to champion and empower every woman as a leader to live fully and freely in her true identity.
"89% of women in the sex industry said they wanted to escape, but had no other means for survival.”
