BENEFITING: REFUGE FOR WOMEN
EVENT DATE: Feb 04, 2017
Human Trafficking is a dark industry that abuses and exploits women of all ages. When a woman is rescued from a trafficker, she is left with many years of past trauma and oftentimes, substance abuse issues.
Refuge for Women is a non-profit, faith based organization that provides long-term care for women who have escaped human trafficking or sexual exploitation. A resident can complete the program in 9 months and may have the opportunity for an additional 3 months of aftercare. Our hope is for each woman to leave Refuge for Women with self-sustainability and a life marked with dignity and hope. While many people have become more aware of sex trafficking, there are not many long term places to go after these women have been rescued. We provide a safe place has been created for residents to experience healing with few distractions.
