A new story for sex-trafficking survivors
SEEDS Program is a holistic approach to restoration. Survivors, who have had everything stolen from them, get the stability and rest they need to dream again! While in our program, survivors are equipped with the wrap around services and resources they need to be transformed. They can also accomplish goals they never knew were possible to tackle – things like getting their GED, reconnecting with their children and family, getting their driver’s license, and even learning to swim.
SEEDS provides a home and program where women receive a personalized education plan, medical aid, trauma therapy, job placement, case management, and restorative services. They also have the opportunity to build healthy and safe relationships that will follow them into their final stage of the program. The final stage is where survivors receive individualized planning and assistance with living independently, career goals, and continued support. SEEDS is there with them every step of the way through their transformation!
SEEDS is not a crisis center or shelter but is a long-term solution for 18+ survivors of sex trafficking and/or exploitation. If a survivor is ready to start a new life outside of what they have known, SEEDS is the perfect place to start.
