The Manasseh Project


Wedgwood’s Manasseh Project began shortly after professional staff at Wedgwood Christian Services helplessly watched as a child they knew and had cared for was trafficked and exploited in Grand Rapids. Despite all their efforts to find her and offer aid, they were unable and ill equipped at the time to address her needs and trauma. Unwilling to have this happen again, they began to research the issue of sex trafficking, both globally and locally, while developing relationships with anti-trafficking organizations and law enforcement agencies in West Michigan. From there, Wedgwood’s Manasseh Project began. To address this growing trend in West Michigan, Wedgwood’s Manasseh Project was developed to both aid victims and to educate the community on human trafficking.


Wedgwood’s Manasseh Project is an outreach ministry of Wedgwood Christian Services dedicated to ending the sexual exploitation of young men and young women in West Michigan. Through community education and collaboration, and Wedgwood's Manasseh Project Trauma Recovery Center, Wedgwood’s Manasseh Project provides support and specialized residential treatment services for victims of sex trafficking and empowers the people of West Michigan to end modern-day slavery.
