We believe impact is not measured by the number of women served, but by the healing women are able to access through our service.
"Today, I want you to know that because of Amirah, I have the chance to live a life people dream about."
Survivor, Residential Program Participant
Recovery is a long and difficult process that no one should have to do alone. Survivors of sex trafficking face many challenges, like personal struggles with PTSD, depression, anxiety, and mental well-being. The physical abuse from trafficking leaves a toll on the body, and social situations always feel awkward in the “square” world. Making a full comeback from trafficking takes years of work and a host of resources. Our desire is that each survivor have the resources and opportunities to achieve her personal goals – goals like being a mom again, having her own apartment, and a well paying job.
We believe it is possible, and we have seen it happen over and over again. Having a team behind a survivor is transformational – we are that team.
In 2020, we provided:
NIGHTS OF FREEDOM
HOURS OF SOCIAL, EMOTIONAL, AND SPIRITUAL RECOVERY
HOURS OF VOCATIONAL, MENTAL, AND PHYSICAL RECOVERY
WOMEN REACHED THROUGH OUTREACH GROUPS
COMMUNITY MEMBERS EDUCATED ON DOMESTIC SEX TRAFFICKING
HEALTH, SOCIAL SERVICE, AND LAW ENFORCEMENT PROFESSIONALS TRAINED IN IDENTIFYING AND HELPING VICTIMS
"The model that Amirah follows, of showing unconditional love, means that if someone truly wants to learn to love themselves it will happen. I have a lot of work to do in that area, I still have many insecurities and I doubt myself often, but I have begun the work. Amirah shows patience and care in a way that no other place I've experienced has. I felt respected as soon as I arrived. This environment has made all the difference in showing me that I always deserve to be treated this way by myself and others."
