The Genesis Project

According to many statistics Seattle is #3 in sex trafficking in America, and #1 in minor sex trafficking in America. These are very saddening statistics especially since much of the sex trafficking occurs just a few miles from our church is located.

Seattle Open Door Church is a small church and we are not able to accomplish much to help those caught up in sex trafficking. BUT, Senior Pastor Richard Dover is convinced that we was a church must do something. What we can do is partner with organizations that are helping to rescue those that want out of commercial sexual exploitation. The Genesis Project is one of those organizations. The Genesis Project provides a drop-in center as a safe-haven for women and girls who have been involved in commercial sexual exploitation and trafficking. They provide a variety of services such as food, clothing, laundry, showers, emergency shelter, case management, legal support, Job & Life Skill Classes, Licensed Mental Health Counseling, and much more.

Pastor Rich as the founder and radio host for There is Hope Radio has promoted The Genesis Project to the lisenting audience including interviews with some of the staff. As a church SODC makes monthly donations to help support The Genesis Project.

The Genesis Project Freedom Walk

Freedom Walk 5K

Freedom Walk 5K is an event that The Genesis Project puts on annually to raise funds and awareness about the issue of sex trafficking in the greater Puget Sound area. Though many are aware of the issue of human trafficking internationally, The Genesis Project strives to bring hope and awareness to the fact that human trafficking exists right here in the Puget Sound area. The sole purpose of the Freedom Walk is to do just that, bring awareness to the issue, raise funds to rescue, and bring full restoration to as many young girls and women who have fallen victim to sex trafficking as possible.

During the 5K Walk participants will walk the same streets in SeaTac, WA as many prostituted women walk everyday. As you take the Journey in Her Shoes, you will hear stories of horror, but more importantly stories of hope and victory.
