Giving Tuesday 2023
Every. Single. Day.
No one wants to be trafficked. No one dreams of being bought/sold multiple times … Every. Single. Day. But it’s happening. Human trafficking is a $150 billion international industry, second only to drug trafficking. The distance between the two crimes is shrinking though as traffickers realize that drugs can only be sold once – and a woman can be sold over and over again.
Nevaeh was 6 the first time her mother sold her for money.
Samantha did what she was told to do to keep her little sister safe.
Jada thought the physical abuse was the worst, but no matter what she did,
she couldn't escape the emotional trauma.
We've changed the names, but their experiences are real.
Your Giving Tuesday gift is powerful: It heals. It restores. It empowers.
Fund Mental Health Coaching
Our mental health coaching program is motivational, empowering our residents to make changes that will improve their daily lives and end tendencies to self-sabotage. The coaching program helps residents discover and strengthen tools that are critical to accomplishing personal objectives, program milestones, and goals our residents set in partnership with other health professionals, including psychologists and counselors. Ultimately, our goal through the mental health coaching component of our residential program is to support a person’s mental health by helping them improve the skills needed to respond to relationship problems, workplace stress, peer issues and changing thinking patterns.
