Arukah Project is a faith-based 501(c)(3) non-profit that works to restore, renew, and rebuild

the lives of survivors of sex trafficking in Santa Cruz County and beyond.

Our integrated approach engages and empowers the local church, businesses, government agencies, and community stakeholders to collaborate to bring wholeness and freedom.​

The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
    because the Lord has anointed me
    to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
    to proclaim freedom for the captives...

-Isaiah 61:1

“While in law enforcement, I have watched the amazing Arukah Project staff walk alongside and support multiple victim/survivors of Human Trafficking and witnessed firsthand the transformation of lives. If you’re looking for a trusted organization to get behind, Arukah Project shines bright.”
