Eden House is a two-year residential program for women who have been commercially and sexually exploited. Modeled after Magdalene House in Nashville, Tennessee, Eden House provides six to eight women a safe and supportive home for two years, free of cost.
Through Eden House, women receive wrap-around services such as counseling, education, and job training. Since addiction is often connected with prostitution, a twelve-step program is part of the Eden House model.
Our organization is the first of its kind in Louisiana serving women attempting to leave prostitution and human trafficking. We were formed to stand in solidarity with women involved in prostitution and violence. The organization empowers these strong women to overcome their pasts and progress spiritually and emotionally, while developing skills to become productive members of society and achieve personal goals.
