Bakhita House, named for Saint Josephine Bakhita, the patroness of victims of human trafficking was a house staffed by the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur and several other religious communities in the Boston area. This ministry provided support and hope for women who were in danger because of human trafficking. The house opened in 2011 and closed in 2019. Several speakers highlighted the greatest gift Bakhita House provided - a loving home. A former resident at the house testified that she experienced unconditional love for the first time at Bakhita House.
While the structure no longer exists, the sisters continue to follow up with many of the women who were guests of Bakhita House and work in other ways to address the issue of human trafficking.
The sisters offered their thanks to God that Bakhita House touched so many lives for over the past eight years and thanked the staff, volunteers and board members who offered their support so generously.
