The Beautiful Exchange Boutique Continues to Transform Lives

October 1, 2022

The Beautiful Exchange Boutique Continues to Transform Lives We have seen amazing impact this month at the Beautiful Exchange Boutique. Our team got to witness to two ladies, and both surrendered their lives to Jesus. A mother got restored back to her children with full custody after years of struggling with addiction. Lastly, we got to help a homeless woman living in a tent receive approval for a housing voucher for one year! Praise God!  The clothing donations have poured in thanks to many people’s generosity.  There are still volunteer opportunities Tuesday through Thursday for women who would be interested in sharing their story with hurting women, leading a small group, helping sort donations, and/or making outreach bags. As of last Monday, we have begun to offer weekly inner healing sessions each Monday at 10 am. All women are welcome to come heal with us in a safe space.  If you would like more information, please email...

Redeem – So Much Impact

August 30, 2022

Redeem - So Much Impact Redeem has had an awesome month! The Beautiful Exchange was able to impact 17 ladies and had seven weekly volunteers. We have had the privilege and honor of working with Kelley Love, who has been a faithful intern this summer. She threw a beautiful Tea Party for the ladies in our community, and she has been such a huge blessing to us! We pray many blessings over her as she returns to the University of North Georgia to continue her degree in sociology with a minor in psychology. Other highlights this month include the following praise reports from our ladies: Dawn started a new job; Carrie was approved for housing; and Shelly started college. The relationship between Shelly and her son has even been restored! Praise the Lord that He is answering our prayers! Finally, if you would like to donate to the Beautiful Exchange Boutique, our current needs are body wash, soap, body spray, hairbrushes, large print Bibles, and first aid supplies. Thank you for continuing to partner with us whether in prayer, donations, or spending time with us and the ladies. We appreciate you! If you would like to be more involved, please email...

Redeem – Abundance

March 23, 2022

Redeem - Abundance We are overwhelmed by God’s abundance! On Monday February 28th, we held a fundraising brunch filled with women from across the local community to share fresh vision for the future of Redeem. During the brunch, Cindy shared how God set her free through the efforts of Redeem, and how the Lord has now used her to minister to multiple women through our women’s clothing closet. During the last year, the Lord stirred Cindy to dream about a renovation in the women’s clothing closet, a renovation that would transform our Clothing Closet into a boutique style resource center where rescued women not only feel safe but sense the intrinsic value of their womanhood. To make this dream a reality, our goal was to raise $30,000 for the renovation. By the Lord’s grace and many generous hearts, we received OVER $30,000! Thank you all so much for pouring into the hearts of these women through your prayers and financial support! We are beyond grateful and can’t wait to see what the Lord has in store for the women that will walk through our doors in the coming months and years. If you would enjoy donating towards the continual upkeep of the clothing closet, please email...

The Beautiful Exchange – Redeem

June 30, 2020

From a helping hand to now transforming lives. These are the testimonies we are already seeing through the Beautiful Exchange Clothing Closet. Through the community, we are receiving AMAZING donations to offer to these women for an opportunity to sit down with them, pray with them, and hear their stories and dreams. Our desire is to build trust with them and help them get into a program that could help them overcome prostitution, homelessness, addiction, and other life-altering issues! Just last week, a man and a woman chose to get off the streets and into a program! We are so encouraged to see God not only use this closet to help with tangible needs but also launch people into wholeness and their destinies.  We also were able to help our sweet friend Charlette find sobriety and get into a program weeks before taking her last breath here on earth. She had suffered from COPD for years and our team was able to minister to her and encourage her to go after the things of the Kingdom instead of the things of the world. She rededicated her life to Jesus and is now dancing in paradise with Him! We are believing for miracles to break out within her family who are now connected with us.     We are honored to partner with the community, Damascus Way, and many of you who have made this dream possible! The gospel is still transforming hearts, and we won’t stop until we see every heart touched!  Go to takethecity.com/redeem to read how you can be more...

Redeem – Women receiving ministry in the midst of COVID-19

May 1, 2020

The pandemic is affecting everyone and yes, especially women in the sex industry. Our Redeem teams have been ramping up efforts in the midst of so much uncertainty to be able to be a helping hand to women we’ve been ministering to over the years during this time.  As strip clubs have closed down, women are out of work and in great need of food and supplies for their families. In reaching out, we have been able to provide over 15 women with food and baby products. Some are even considering changing job occupancies because our leaders are helping them with resumes and job applications! Furthermore, we are starting a zoom women’s group with some of them at the beginning of May.  We have been able to help in various other ways as well. One, we’ve taken small groups to areas Redeem consistently visits to bring food boxes to women and their families as many have lost their jobs. Two, we are starting a zoom women’s group at the beginning of May with some of the ladies we have been ministering to. Three, we have been able to minister to women online and bring them beloved bags and offer other services for job opportunities and ways out of the life.  One way people can help in this time: We are in the process of launching our women and children’s closet to meet tangible needs. We believe this can open the door to discipleship & even helping them reach their destiny God has for their life!  Many women coming out of jail, in the life of drug addiction, or prostitution don’t...

I learned about Take The City through a young lady at our church about 5 years ago and after going on my first outreach, I was HOOKED. I fell in love with the family environment, organic evangelism, and genuine love that I experience here.  The training, connections, and opportunities that I’ve been blessed with here have been nothing short of life-changing!  God bless my TTC family.
