Social Enterprise

In our experience of helping women exit the sex industry, we recognized the many obstacles women face when they decide to leave their exploitation. The goal of our social enterprise is to provide employment opportunities while women are able to rebuild their lives.


Through our restorative care program, we provide trauma-informed therapy, a safe place to live, and employment opportunities to help women transition out of commercial sexual exploitation We are not just a shelter, our goal is seeing lives changed.


The Elijah Rising Store is located at 1135 E. 11th St. in the heart of the Heights in Houston, TX.

*Our physical store location is closed because of COVID-19. You may still purchase our products online at shop.elijahrising.org
