Homelessness is a catalyst for and can be a result of the growth of sex trafficking. It becomes a reality that the only way to be cared for is to sell one's body and a homeless woman or girl can be lured into this way of life. Children who have been in foster care, living from relative to relative, sleeping here and there and then showing up for school are considered homeless.
The lack of balance in jobs, wages and earnings in the USA, lack of affordable health care and rising rental and real estate prices pushes what might have been an average wage worker into poverty and homelessness.
Through funds, volunteering, creating awareness- we are helping them sustain their missions and continue their work. Here are some of our current and past initiatives led by women that we have supported.
