Survivors Find Hope at The Rose Home

Human trafficking takes a lot from a person – their safety, their sense of self-worth, and even their hopes for the future. At the Rose Home we use vision boards to encourage the women to reclaim their future and to begin to dream big again. When each new survivor feels settled into The Rose Home, she sits down with a coach to create her very own vision board. The vision board helps her imagine what she wants her life to look like and how it could possibly happen. When it’s finished, a coach hangs the vision board in her room so she can see it every day. On the hard days when nothing seems to be going right, she can...

The Rose Center's First Graduate We are so excited to announce that our very first participant in the Rose Center’s Program has graduated this May!

She said they just threw her into the job, but because she had prior experience at a similar job, she felt like it was second nature. She is very excited to...

April Newsletter from Wisconsin

April was Sexual Assault Awareness Month. People who experience sexual assault are more vulnerable to become victims of sex trafficking. We care about preventing sexual assault. Change You Can See When we shared how Micah at Northern Tide Tattoo helps survivors of sex trafficking, we were overwhelmed at the response! Every time we meet a survivor with a brand from a trafficker, he offers to cover it with a new tattoo—completely for free. One participant at The Rose Home had a black brand. Now it's completely obscured by brightly-colored lotus flowers, thanks to Micah. The survivor chose lotus flowers because they can grow in the mud. The tattoo reminds her of being a flower growing into something beautiful despite her childhood...
