Caritas Bakhita HouseCaritas Bakhita House

    At Caritas Bakhita House, we provide women escaping human trafficking with the safety and support to allow them to begin the recovery process.
    A small but growing number of trafficked and enslaved people are being rescued and what they need is rehabilitation and protection … not moral condemnation or criminalisation.


    Bakhita House staff coordinates a team of over 30 volunteers from a variety of religious congregations as well as lay volunteers. They provide the following services to our guests:

    • Assisting with coverage at the house
    • Providing transportation
    • Accompanying guests to services
    • Offering on-site life skills and social skills training
    • Providing specialized counseling
    • Engaging in advocacy efforts
    • Tutoring
    • Fund raising

    Volunteers receive training and are encouraged to be non-judgmental in their interactions with guests, providing an additional layer of care, support, and community at Bakhita House.
