Thank You for Your Year of Service!


This month we said goodbye to our wonderful Young Adult Volunteer from the Presbyterian Church, Meg Wilder. Meg was an invaluable asset at Eden House during her year of service and her presence is greatly missed in our houses. We look forward to welcoming our next YAV in September and continuing our relationship with the Presbyterian Church.

This year’s event will start with an exclusive Patron Party with champagne, oysters, and more then continue with many other culinary treats and even a bourbon room to complement our other spirits. By popular demand, we are bringing back our favorite theme of “Ball Gowns and Blue Jeans”. The event will be held on Wednesday, November 16, 2022 with the Patron Party beginning at 6:30 PM and the main event at 7:30 PM.

The fundraiser is a great opportunity for your company to sponsor Eden House and receive a great deal of PR and exposure. We will gratefully acknowledge all of our sponsors during both the Patron Party and Main Event as well as on the invitation, the program, and in all social media. This is a great opportunity to gain visibility in the community as a company who will not tolerate Human Trafficking and who is dedicated to healing those who are impacted by this injustice.

Thank You to Our Summer Interns!

This summer we hosted seven wonderful interns with a passion for supporting survivors of human trafficking. They contributed to a number of projects including organizing our donation closet, providing grant writing support, updating our community resource guide, and preparing our weekly community meal. On July 19th, they had the opportunity to tour the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeal with an Eden House board member, Honorable Judge Joy Lobrano. Thank you so much to Judge Lobrano and her staff for introducing our intern class to their work in the Fourth Circuit and for their support of Eden House's mission.
