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...

March Newsletter from Alabama

One Year of Freedom at The Rose Center The Rose Center celebrated one year of fighting human trafficking on March 20th! Our dreams of a safe place for women and girls at risk of trafficking came true when we opened The Rose Center. For one year, we've been able to help women and girls at risk of — or involved with — trafficking meet their needs, self-identify as victims, attain coping skills, and gain workplace skills. We have seen our participants at the Rose Center experience love like never before and be empowered to leave a life of trafficking and trauma. This is what it’s all about: to show survivors that they are enough — that they do not need to do anything to deserve love.

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. When we asked this participant what her brand means to her, she said, “It makes me feel like I’m still stuck in the past.” Even though this survivor lives at The Rose Home now, her brand was a physical marker of the trafficking and addiction she fought...

The First Year of Freedom at The Rose Center

Today, we're celebrating the first anniversary of The Rose Center opening its doors in Southern Alabama! For what seems like forever, we dreamed of a place for women and girls who are being trafficked or at risk of trafficking in Southern Alabama to safely rest. We dreamed of a place the community could rally behind, where services for healing trauma and empowering women could gather under one roof. We dreamed of a place that could serve as a bridge between “The Life” of trafficking and a full, free life. One year ago, we saw those dreams come true when we opened The Rose Center in Mobile. We saw one participant leave her trafficker and move into safe housing. We helped...
