March Newsletter from Wisconsin

HEALING INSIDE & OUT AT THE ROSE HOME Two new participants joined The Rose Home this month! One is a returning participant who was not ready to complete the program before. We’re so glad to welcome her back! One participant attended her first tattoo consultation to cover up a brand from her trafficker. Traffickers use brands to claim ownership over a person and dehumanize them, and that message can stick with a survivor.

A Day in the Rose Home: Three Aspects

In our A Day in the Rose Home blog series, we’re showing you a behind-the-scenes look at what actually happens in The Rose Home. The Rose Home is structured by three aspects of the program: trauma-informed therapy, life skills, and workforce preparation. With these three aspects at play, we intend to arm each girl with the tools she needs to successfully move on once she leaves The Rose Home. First and foremost, each girl at The Rose Home participates in trauma-informed therapy in several different ways. Each individual goes to weekly appointments with a trauma-informed therapist; this allows each girl to really focus on what she needs to process in order to live her healthiest life. It also ensures privacy...
