Naomi’s House's Mission

We exist because every woman who has suffered from commercial sexual exploitation deserves a new start.

Our Ministry

Naomi’s House is composed of trauma-informed and licensed professional counselors.
With the additional dedication of volunteers, partners, and donors, we are helping women heal and achieve hundreds of self-identified goals. We are faith-based, rooted in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and are committed to the full healing of each exploited woman, believing she is the best advocate for her own care.

About

Naomi’s House (NH) was launched in 2016 by two women on staff at The Moody Church. Overwhelmed with the number of women commercially sexually exploited in the Chicagoland area with very limited resources for healing, Simone Halpin and Mary Lowman created Naomi’s House—the first residential program for adult Survivors in the Chicagoland area with a comprehensive, trauma-informed, and gospel-centered approach. Since launching in 2016, NH has grown to three district programs in three locations serving Survivors of sex trafficking. NH believes that every woman who has been commercially sexually exploited deserves a new start. NH and The Moody Church remain partners today—Moody continues to provide organizational over-site to NH while NH is responsible for their own funding.

Greetings,
 
On August 26, 2021, IL Governor J.B. Pritzker issued an Executive Order mandating that masks be worn at all indoor gatherings. Although churches are exempt from the Executive Order, out of respect for governing authorities, Parkview has continued to ask staff, leaders, volunteers, and those attending Sunday gatherings to wear a mask while indoors. We are grateful for our people’s understanding and willingness to do so. The Governor recently indicated that his Executive Order will be rescinded on Monday, February 28th making masks no longer required in most indoor settings. In anticipation of that, on Sunday, February 27th Parkview will return to a “mask optional” policy.

While the mask policy has once again shifted, our commitment to your health and wellbeing has not. We remain dedicated to thoroughly cleaning our public spaces before and after our gatherings. Masks and hand sanitizer are still readily available to those who want them.

Navigating these difficult days has not always been clear or easy. Whatever your perspective on current realities, as fellow Christians, let us allow kindness, grace and compassion characterize our interaction and relationships. In the words of the Apostle Paul, “Let us be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.”

I look forward to being with you on Sundays.
 
Grace and Peace,
