About Us

Magdalene House of Austin was chartered in 2016 due to a lack of long-term, holistic care for adult survivors of sex trafficking in the Austin area. When a victim is released from jail or their captor, in many situations the survivor doesn’t have a support system like a permanent place to live, or the training to hold a job to prevent them from going back to the street. Most rehabilitation centers for human trafficking are for minors, and while there are a handful of short-term emergency care operations for adults, there is an enormous need for long-term care in the state of Texas, nationally-ranked as one of the top three states for sex trafficking.  Many times survivors will land in a short-term facility, but never heal from their trauma which leads to lifetime revictimization. The women involved have nowhere to go. Many have been arrested more than 30 times because they don’t have a place to live and receive counseling. As a result, survivors often return to their trafficker, or the streets, for lack of a better option. Magdalene House ATX will provide a better option and be a sanctuary for healing. As the first long-term residential program in central Texas, Magdalene House ATX will offer a life in community that empowers survivors to create an independent and meaningful future.
