Haven for Hope -
New Hope for Survivors of Human Trafficking
The Haven for Hope is VB HOPE’s response to the great need for safe and restorative housing for survivors of adult human trafficking. Truly, it is a miracle when anyone escapes the slavery of human trafficking. Those who do have special needs to make a full recovery from their trauma.
Survivors need a safe place to recover from their physical and mental wounds, support to gain confidence and strength, and new skills to get back on their feet and gain independence.
Haven for Hope will be a home for adult women that provides all of these things. Women will be accepted into the home for a two-year program to begin their healing journey. Haven for Hope will use the Thistle Farms model. (See more at thistlefarms.org).
Our goal is to be fully funded for two years of operations when we open our doors. We welcome all forms of support including financial support, donated items, and volunteer time. We are also looking for Board members as BV HOPE's projects continue to grow.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 719-395-6938.
