While developing our strategy for moving the needle on sexual exploitation, we listened to experts who agreed the thing our region needs most is a place where women can go 24/7 to escape and find healing from the terrible life of sexual exploitation.
Real Escape from the Sex Trade (REST) has been working for years to open an Emergency Receiving Center (ERC) for the specific purpose of having a 24/7 facility ready to serve those who need immediate support, and with SAFE’s help, REST will open the doors this October!
We are grateful to our donors
and friends who have enabled SAFE
to provide $80,000 to help
open the ERC!
The average cost of serving a woman at the ERC with shelter, supportive services, and medical & mental health care is about $5,000 for a 30-60 day stay. In order to fully fund the ERC so they can increase capacity and serve as many women as possible year-round, SAFE has committed to an additional $220,000 in the upcoming year. Please consider sponsoring a woman (or two!) at the ERC for the year, and encourage those in your circle of influence to do so as well.
Thank you again for your interest in SAFE. Your support and giving matters to the girls and women who will finally have a safe place to get out of the terrible life of sexual exploitation.
