For most people, the ravages of human trafficking appear every now and then on a TV screen. For our founder, Edie Rhea, it darkened her front door at age of 10 and stole the next seven years of her life. She is not alone.
Founded in 2013, Healing Root Ministry is the culmination of 37 years of the personal experience.
Edie is a thriver of childhood sexual abuse and human trafficking. She has dedicated her life to aide in the healing of fellow survivors, as well as dealing with crisis intervention through the aftermath of sexual abuse. Edie shares her real-life experiences and testimony to help women find hope and develop a deeper passion for knowing God! Edie also focuses on preventing childhood abuse of all kinds through speaking events, awareness and educational programs!
Edie is the President and Founder of Healing Root Ministry. Healing Root is Non-profit organization that advocated for victims of human trafficking and sexual abuse. Healing root is opening an intake center for women who have been rescued from human trafficking!
In the News:
Edie was asked to appear in a recent PBS documentary in Tampa, FL. We hope you will take the time to watch and maybe better familiarize with the problems facing women in our own back yard.
