Emmaus is a non-profit working to prevent exploitation and empower male survivors of the sex trade to rebuild their lives. We aim to provide a trustworthy and significant solution for people to support in faith, with confidence that we are making a real difference in the lives of hurting men and boys.

Through outreach teams and a Survivor Support Center, EMMAUS staff and volunteers build relationships of trust with the men, working together to assist them in getting off the streets and rebuilding their lives.

We believe:

Treasure People – We believe people are of inherent and immeasurable worth, deserving to be seen, known, heard, and accepted. We respect and celebrate the dignity of everyone.

Empower Survivors – We believe restored people restore people. Rather than being rescuers, we equip and empower survivors in their journey to wholeness.

Build Community – We believe that collaboration between our clients, partners and supporters can accomplish much. We strive to create inclusive environments where people grow, are free from fear and are able to be their truest selves.

Listen & Learn – We seek out diverse perspectives, refining our approach by listening to others with lived experience. We are forever learners: hearing, thinking, and responding intentionally.

Be Transparent – We keep our word to those we serve, our supporters and partner organizations. We seek to be truthful, authentic, and dependable in all that we do.

Do not Give Up – We remove obstacles, find new paths, and innovate to reach our clients and to protect the vulnerable. We are hopeful, patient, and persistent seeking God’s grace to endure.
