Did you know that each year as many as 24,000 women and girls are being sexually exploited in Chicago?

We were shocked too, and the more we learned, the more we realized that, for us, inaction wasn’t an option. After much prayer, we are following God’s lead to take an active role on behalf of these women.

It is with great excitement that we introduce Naomi’s House, a ministry of The Moody Church. This residential program will offer the hope and healing of Jesus to women in the Chicago area who have been sexually exploited.
