Aloha and mahalo nui for stopping by the Zera House Hawaii page. We're excited to be expanding this ministry to Hawaii because, as I'm sure you are aware, human trafficking is a growing problem in the islands.
Zera House is dedicated to establishing safe homes in the United States for women who have been victims of human trafficking and sexual exploitation. It is our hope to have a fully equipped safe home in Hawaii by 2021. In this home, we will provide a long term recovery program for a group of women who wish to heal from the injustices and abuse they have suffered. We will provide medical and psychological care, teach sustainable living practices through horticulture therapy, provide opportunities to further their education, receive job training, and learn other important life skills to help our survivors reintegrate into a healthy life with their friends and family.
At the center of our program is Jesus. We want our women to know that they are dearly loved daughters of the King, that they are worthy and valued, that through Jesus they stand holy and pure.
We are a 100% privately funded, accredited 501(c)3 organization. We rely soley on the generosity of those who believe in this mission and wish to support us. Every donation, every financial partnership makes a difference!
Are you interested in coming alongside us? We are calling for kokua!
Here are 3 ways you can get involved:
1. Volunteer: We have a growing base of volunteers that we will rely on to help us launch this ministry in Hawaii. We need locals who are connected to the community to help spread awareness, fundraise, and help us with our events.
2. Financial Partnership: As mentioned, we rely on donations to get us (and keep us) up and running. To fulfill our mission it will take a lot of resources. We have to acquire a home for our survivors, stock up on all necessary supplies for the home, meet staff and residents needs (food, shelter, gas, transportation, medical, etc.). There are A LOT of costs involved in this project.
3. Prayer Warriors: We need people committed to praying for this ministry. Your consistent and unrelenting prayers are the backbone of this project. Please go before the Lord for us!
We are just beginning to lay the ground work for Zera House Hawaii. Here are a couple upcoming events:
FALL 2019: Host a meeting on Oahu (potentially other islands if arrangements can be made) for all interested volunteers. It will be an opportunity to learn more, ask questions, and brainstorm together.

Mahalo and we can't wait to see where the Lord will take this!
