Compassion motivates us, as we recognise the inherent value of every individual. Rahab does not exist to ‘fix’ people, we are instead here to serve. By offering befriending and support we seek to open up opportunities and restore all hope and belief.
Rahab began when 3 people independently contacted the National Christian Alliance on Prostitution (NCAP). In the same month local police asked MTF’s CEO if support could be offered to women involved in on-street prostitution, helping break the cycle of re-offending. People from local churches and Christian social action organisations formed the Steering Group, and night outreach started in November 2005. We’re still predominantly a voluntary organisation for night outreach and now offer day-time support, keywork and advocacy, partnering with other local organsisations.
