Route One Ministry
Ministering to women in the sex industry

Would you like to become part of a team that ministers to those women exploited by the sex industry?
Do you have a desire to teach english classes to the women of one of the clubs Route One ministers to?
Would you like to donate to help this ministry become more effective?

The vision of Route One is to minister to women exploited by the sex industry on the North Shore and the greater Boston area.
Through building relationships with the women, they hope to be the light of Christ and provide for physical, emotional and spiritual needs. Providing for their physical and emotional needs might include helping them leave the sex industry and securing employment. Further their  goal is that they have the tools to establish a healthy lifestyle, redeem broken relationships and have a fuller view of who they are as women created in the image of God.

Ultimately their desire is that the women would experience the breaking of chains and healing of wounds through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Start a Clothing Drive

There is a need for clothing  and here’s an opportunity to get real practical with that: we’re collecting lightly used women’s clothing, all sizes and seasons, that will be organized into a free boutique the women will draw from to build their wardrobe. Since we’re going to be serving women who are 18 and older, we especially need clothes that 20-somethings will feel special wearing – and not just the usual shirts, pants, etc – we need coats, hats, gloves, women’s accessories, (new) underwear, pajamas and jewelry! Get your church involved! Contact Bob Atherton at batherton@amirahboston.org if you have any questions!
