Loved and Cherished

Loved & Cherished is a ministry of Won by One Church. We are a ministry committed to caring for those in the sex industry, human trafficked victims, as well as providing community education against trafficking and internet safety. We are dedicated to assisting women, men and children, involved in or associated with the sex industry, commercialized sexual exploitation, trafficking
and adult entertainment.

Our ministry is in the Portland metro area reaching out to those working in the sex industry, letting them know they are valued and loved. Our goal is to build relationship through gifts and resource material. We are passionate about helping those in this community know they are valued, loved and cherished. According to RAINN every 98 seconds an American is sexually assaulted! 1 out of every 6 women have been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime. According to a study by Innovations in Clinical Neuroscience journal, between 66-90% of women in the sex industry were sexually abused as children. Sexual assault is the most under reported crime. We work to provide resources, counseling and support to overcome the effects of trauma, with no underlying motives. Loved & Cherished also provides community education about internet safety and human trafficking. Our goal in education is to arm our community with knowledge, to protect themselves against traffickers and predators. According to Equality Now, “at least 20.9 million adults and children are bought and sold worldwide into commercial sexual servitude, forced labor and bonded labor. About 2 million children are exploited every year in the global commercial sex trade, almost 6 in 10 identified trafficking survivors were trafficked for sexual exploitation.” We have a passion for helping those who have been effected by human trafficking.

We wish to support victims with resources, relationship and safe havens. We currently are in need of supplies to continue providing monthly gifts for the wonderful people we serve. Would you consider providing a gift so that we might build bridges to relationship, stem the tide of trafficking, and change the lives of men women and children in our community? We are always happy to answer questions, we also love to hear from our sponsors and gifting angels.
