Cherished High Desert
Cherished High Desert is a free residential program and social enterprise dedicated to empowering survivors of human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation.
Cherished's impact is five-fold:
- Residential Program
- Social Enterprise
Under the umbrella of The Highlands Christian Fellowship, Cherished started as an outreach in 2011. Now its own non-profit, in March 2015, Cherished opened its residential program which provides housing for up to 3 years for survivors. Cherished is also a social enterprise. Survivors work in the Cherished Studio creating jewelry pieces as well as organic bath and body products. Our jewelry is sold in a Fair Trade catalog as well as at fairs, festivals and boutiques.
