On September 1, 2019, Breaking Free will be opening an emergency shelter that will host up to four clients at a time for a period up to two weeks. Currently, if a victim is identified in Minnesota over the age of 18 years old, there are very few options, if any, for them to get emergency shelter today. During the last week of July, 2019, the staff came to Breaking Free on two different days to find clients sleeping on our porch. We’ve purchased sleeping bags, tents, provided hotel rooms and have spent down all of our funding to help those that fall into this ‘gap of services’.
As the crowd rose to their feet at the Pyle Center at the U of W at Madison last Saturday, April 13th, in ovation of a panel discussion that Breaking Free survivors participated in, I was so proud! Proud of their courage, proud of their wisdom and proud of the voices that they each shared. Thanks to 4W-STREETS (Social Transformations to End Exploitation and Trafficking for Sex, for sponsoring our plenary panel discussion and to Chris Stark who paved the way. We were able to highlight the art and experiences that we held as survivors of prostitution and trafficking.
