COMING SOON: A holistic way to support women, their children, and the leaders who help them.
When we hear about the massive scale of human trafficking and the devastating effects of sexual exploitation, it’s easy to feel like there’s little we can do to help.
Many of us give financially or do what we can to raise awareness, but it can be difficult to stay engaged to a cause long enough to see change, simply because our hearts aren’t designed to connect to causes. We’re designed to connect to people.
We created Servantworks Circles because we believe that human connection matters. The healing model Jesus demonstrated wasn’t simply “give to the poor and hurting” but an invitation to be in community with all kinds of people, sharing as we are able.
When you join a Servantworks Circle, you’re committing to more than a monthly donation. You’ll learn names and see faces, celebrate birthdays, graduations, and new jobs, and when members of your circle have heavy burdens, you’ll help to bear them through prayer and encouragement. You’ll know that what you’re doing helps.
Servantworks Circles are intended to be mutual, so we hope you’ll be helped, too. We’ll connect with you, learn your name and face, and celebrate joys and bear burdens alongside you. Right now, this primarily happens via email, but we look forward to expanding to other online formats as we grow.
We have three circles open at this time. Our work at The Well has helped us identify key groups who benefit from ongoing support.

Why this Model?
“Our perspective should be less about how we are going to fix the materially poor and more about how we can walk together, asking God to fix both of us.”When Helping Hurts: How to Alleviate Poverty Without Hurting the Poor . . . and Yourself by Brian Fikkert and Steve Corbett
Regular, committed gifts—even small ones—free our team in Thailand to plan ahead wisely. They can focus on the person in front of them, without worrying about whether the funds to help that person can be raised.
As a member of your circle, your monthly gift is automatic, so you can plan for it in your budget.
We work with women and families who have unpredictable lives and non-linear healing journeys. Traditional one-to-one sponsorship models haven’t been a good fit for most.
As a member, you’ll share a supporting role with a group, everyone giving as they are able. Small acts of faithfulness and generosity add up quickly.
A community supporting a community removes some of the weird power imbalance created by a rich person “saving” a poor person through charitable giving.
As a member, you’ll not only receive regular updates from your circle, but also have an invitation to send them updates of your own. We are all walking together.
