Agency Summaries

Rahab’s Daughters

Rahab’s Daughters is a non-profit agency addressing the issues of Female Human Trafficking within our local area. The program rescues, houses, educates and rehabilitates women who have been trafficked. Rahab’s Daughters provides a safe place to live while addressing complex issues including medical and psychological treatment, procurement of necessary documents, a work training program and an educational workshop which allows women to complete the GED program.

Rahab’s Daughters is the only Human Trafficking Program with a safe house in the Barrington area. The program also allows mothers to be able to keep their young children with them while in the program.

The Power of the Purse grant will be used to assist in funding the GED program, including the cost of materials, tutoring, and exam fees.

WINGS Program Inc.

The mission of WINGS Program, Inc. is to provide housing, integrated services, education and advocacy in an effort to end domestic violence. Besides offering emergency, transitional and permanent supportive housing, WINGS helps adult victims and their children lead safe, independent lives after experiencing the devastation of domestic violence.

The Power of the Purse grant will be used to support the Barrington House, a part of the WINGS Transitional Living Program. The Barrington House is one of WINGS ‘24 homes and is the only transitional living home in Barrington for families who need a safe, supportive residence with comprehensive services to get back on their feet and return to society in a state of self-sufficiency after domestic violence.
