About Us

Our History

A team of passionate people gathered in a dining room the Fall of 2012 and began fighting slavery in Bond County, Illinois. Beginning with learning together about human trafficking and exploring their community they were faced with a community unaware of trafficking. This team became a Set Free Movement task force and spearheaded efforts to see a community transformed and in pursuit of a Zero Tolerance [for injustices] Community. Within three years significant engagement had taken place through the team’s effort to network, educate, and mobilize a community. The team continues to work within four primary constructs: AWARENESS, PREVENTION, RESCUE, and RESTORATION.

While being birthed out of the Set Free Movement ethos, the work has expanded to the formation of a restoration home for survivors of trafficking called Eden’s Glory. This home is the result of effective community engagement and is a Christ-centered two-year residential treatment program serving adult women, ages 18 and older. As of October 2014, Illinois only has 8 beds available to trafficking victims; Eden’s Glory will initially add 4 beds to that number. The Set Free Movement and Eden’s Glory are partnering with a wide variety of organizations working holistically to pave the way to hope and healing for survivors.
