Won’t you please help us this year with our Emergency Shelter that has served 30 girls and women since we opened in September, 2019.
Our shelter operates 365 days a year 24/7. We provide Case Management, Safety Plans, Shelter/Food and guidance while we help our clients navigate a safer, healthier life. We CAN NOT do this without your help! Thank you in advance for your investment into the lives of so many who are exiting bondage and sexual exploitation. YOU CAN make a difference!
As the crowd rose to their feet at the Pyle Center at the U of W at Madison 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.
Breaking Free street outreach and presence has increased greatly in Minneapolis and St Paul! Street Outreach is an important area to build trust with the community as well as awareness for the organization of the latest things taking place on the streets and identifying emergency situations.
Street Outreach has been part of locating missing women and girls and getting them back to their family.
