Dedicated to the lives of women there were victimized to Human Trafficking. Our program is 9-12 months of 24/7 supervision, self-improvement, emotional recovery, and drug and addiction recovery. Our goal for these victims are to get them ready to be independent and empower them. With our resources we are able to get them through the emotional recovery, provide rehabilitation services to recover from drug/addiction abuse, direction towards furthering their education, financial guidance, and job placement.
Our Mission Statement:
To provide safe, secure housing along with holistic services for vulnerable women in order to help them grow on their journey from survivor to thriver.
Many of these women end up being victimized through this modern day slavery due to lack of family support, drug addiction, lack of education, lack of job skills, and financial hardships. It’s a shame that these beautiful individuals deal with the traumas of Human Trafficking where the mind feels as if there is no hope. We give them hope and a home. We not only follow the cause of spreading awareness of Human Trafficking, but also the problematic issues of Prostitution, Substance Abuse and Domestic Violence. We all have to stick together and continue spreading the awareness of these issues.
Did you know that in 2015 about 340 Human Trafficking cases were reported by State Sources in Ohio? 143 out of 340 cases were minors. These minors were between the ages of 13-17 years old. A few of the cases were 12 years old or younger.
Toledo has made 40 convictions and saved 120 youth from child trafficking. With a common age of 13. That being said that could be anyone’s child. It is easy to find victims when there are over 1,000 children in foster care and over 2,000 Toledo Public School students that are Homeless in 2017.
With the support from you all we can continue helping these women and spreading the awareness of Human Trafficking. We can make our communities safe. We can help these victims. We can provide the knowledge and stories of Human Trafficking. We are here to educate, prevent and rebuild.
