Engedi Refuge - Home Deep Clean

Who are we serving?

Engedi Refuge provides a restorative program for women who have survived sexual exploitation, prostitution and trafficking. We serve them with dignity and compassion. We demonstrate the love of Christ as we teach them practical ways to overcome challenges and embrace healthy living.

Who is helping connect us to their needs?


Engedi Refuge Ministries is a faith-based, holistic program where women can recover from the devastating effects of sexual exploitation. Engedi exists to provide restoration, hope, and support to those struggling to overcome such things as poverty, addiction, depression, and complex trauma often  association with a life of prostitution and sex trafficking. They do this through safe housing, trauma-informed classes, and a supportive atmosphere of empowerment and dignity.  Engedi’s program is designed to care for each resident physically, spiritually, emotionally, and socially as they work toward sustainable independence and sobriety. Engedi is among the most comprehensive and successful recovery programs of its kind in the United States.

How are we serving?

We would love to partner with women in the community who would like to help us with deep “spring” cleaning one of our houses. We like to do this twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall. We can provide a list of cleaning duties and all the supplies needed. This can be a fun time of serving together and is a huge help to the Engedi staff!

Who do you contact?

Once your group has chosen a couple dates that work, please contact Lea Newcomb, Executive Director at Engedi.refuge@gmail.com or call 360-922-7600 to finalize a date that works for them and nail down the details.

If you need help in the process, Wendy at CTK is available (wendyp@ctk.church or 360-733-1337 ext 212) Please share your project with us by using the hashtag #CTKserves on social media!

At CTK, we value authenticity, simplicity, empowerment, relationship, and caring about the community we live in. One key way we serve is by empowering small groups to make a difference through our local partners who address important issues for those in the hardest life circumstances. The opportunity below is a chance to tangibly demonstrate God's care, compassion, and love for those around us. As your church, we hope this makes it easy for you to put the Great Commandment to love your neighbor as yourself into action
