hed_shotWelcome to our Web site! We are so glad you found us.

My name is Edie, and no matter who you are, I want you to know there is hope, hope for women who have been enslaved and abused.

I know that personally. And that is what has led me to serve in an area that far too many ignore.

Whether this is your first time here or if you are already a friend or partner, please know I want to take your call – (813) 949-7495. I want to respond to your email.

It is my real joy to walk alongside many who are being set free.  I look forward to speaking with you soon.

dandelion3What we do: organized into four areas of serviceour ministry helps women transition out of sexual slavery.

  • The Gate – is our new home, a safe shelter and transition home.
  • Small group – is a way for women to connect with other women.
  • One on One – is a special, intentional time to just talk with someone who has been there.
  • Strip Club – is a ministry of service and love to women working in local clubs.

Healing Root is empowering women to live the lives God chose for them.

flowers_What is the story? Human trafficking and sexual slavery is a local problem right in your neighborhood. And it is more than that.

It is a multi billion-dollar industry that enslaves and sells real people as its product. Real women. Women who God loves. Our ministry is sharing that love with women who are being set free.

We hope you will take the time to watch this recent documentary from WEDU in Tampa, and connect to the Our Story page to learn more about us.
