Our Residents Are Brave Survivors

Human sex trafficking is the fastest growing criminal enterprise in the world. It is a booming industry in the United States, and it thrives because there is a serious demand for commercial sex with minors. Every day children, minors and young women are being bought and sold for sex. We have hope that our long-term program will help survivors.
Drugs, certain pharmaceuticals and alcohol are powerful substances. Struggling with addiction to them is not a sign of weakness, a character flaw, or a moral failure. It is a common condition that affects millions of people of all ages, backgrounds, and socioeconomic groups. And while there is no one cause of addiction, there is hope that it can be treated effectively with long-term care in a safe living space that gives these survivors time to truly heal and transition back to a productive and healthy life. 
We encourage you to help us with our mission to provide a sanctuary, a place of refuge, healing and restoration to women seeking a life free from trafficking, prostitution and addiction.
