    Rewriting Her Story


Women At Risk, International (WAR, Int’l) is a Grand Rapids-based, nonprofit organization, established to create circles of protection around at-risk women and children. Through culturally sensitive, value-added intervention projects and partnerships, we provide safe places to heal from abuse, trafficking, exploitation, and more. Our passion is to empower survivors to live and work with dignity and hope.

WAR, Int’l enables the creation of safe places for women and children and also gives a voice to their silenced cries. By educating communities about risk issues and providing individuals with practical ways to take action, we extend our reach through you.

Our programs and partnerships span the globe, reaching over 40 countries, including the United States. Each month, additional projects and partnerships are formed, increasing our ability to offer the rescued and at-risk a “hand-up” instead of a handout.

This year, WAR Int’l celebrates it’s 10th year of rescuing, redeeming, and empowering those at-risk as a formal, incorporated 501c3 entity. Our theme for 2016 is “Sent to Serve,” with a focus on servant leadership. Christ came, not to be served, but to serve. This truth can be found at the very core of Women At Risk, Int’l, and we look forward to sharing our heart with you this year through this very theme.

We are passionate about being a safe place to those we rescue. They have been denied safety in their lives and are desperate for it. Years of working with the wounded around the world has taught us that when you get rid of all the cultural details, one fact remains: no one heals until he or she feels safe. But, every culture, even every sub-culture, defines safety differently. This is why a safe house in one culture will look radically different from a safe house in another culture in the WAR world of partners. We understand it takes a committed group of people to walk a journey with the wounded, and we are passionate about becoming safe havens for the least of these.
