Our Impact

We've reached over 150 women between five strip clubs and three massage parlors across Michigan, and we have no plans of stopping. We are committed to the success of women in our state, and we are dedicated to sharing the redemptive, life-changing message of Christ to empower women to walk in ultimate freedom with the God who created them.

Between all three cities, we've come together for more than 350 outreaches during our five years of service in West and Northern Michigan.

Our Programs

We have several different programs as part of our organization. Read more about each one below.

 

Strip club outreach

In Traverse City, we reach out to two strip clubs, bringing meals and gifts to the bouncers, bartenders, and dancers, encouraging them and providing much-needed resources to help them get back on their feet after experiencing exploitation. In Cadillac, we reach out to one strip club with several dancers, and a bartender with whom we've built solid relationships. We took a hiatus from strip clubs in Grand Rapids due to safety issues for our team, and we are currently praying about what this might look like in the future as we continue to grow.  
 

street outreach

We are in the beginning stages in Grand Rapids of developing a street outreach team, ministering to young girls experiencing homelessness, or women prostituting, in populous areas of our city. If you are interested in joining us in this endeavor, or you have experience with this type of outreach and are interested in consulting with us, please email us at info@createdfree.org. 

massage parlor outreach

Only in Grand Rapids at this time, our team ministers to several massage parlors that are operating as legal brothels within our city limits. The reality is that we have 16 of these in Grand Rapids currently, and 11 of them are owned by the same woman. We simply bring love, snacks, and the message of Christ as we care for these women holistically, offering hope and healing. Our goal is to continue to grow in this area as volunteers join our team and grow our numbers in mighty ways. 
 

Foster care

Studies tell us there is a direct correlation between the foster care system and human trafficking. In fact, more than 6% of children placed in the foster care system have been sexually abused at some point. Seven out of 10 girls who age out of foster care will become pregnant by the time they're 21 years old. We are still praying about our role in this space, and we can't wait to update you on where God leads the Created Free team!

She sat with us and opened each package and thanked us for each gift given in love. we prayed blessings over her around the table. we spoke words of life into her.
