TOGETHER, WE CAN MAKE AN IMPACT.
As we create a life of opportunity for ourselves and our families, we are also human beings committed to increasing opportunities for others. This is our way of raising the positive vibrations of the world and to remind ourselves of all the blessings we continue to receive by giving back to our communities and friends. One of my all time favorite non-profits is Thistle Farms which is committed to providing healing and housing for survivors of abuse, prostitution and addiction. Please help make an impact by donating below.
Thistle Farms is a community of women healing from prostitution, trafficking & addiction. It includes a two-year residential program, social enterprises that employ survivors, and an education and outreach program for the public. We believe love is the strongest force for change in the world.
Begun in 1997 by the Rev. Becca Stevens under the name Magdalene, the residential program today serves up to 32 women in 5 homes, 6 additional women through our inmate program, and hundreds more with advocacy and referral services. Residents receive housing, medical care, therapy, education and job training for two years, at no cost to them. No staff member lives in the homes and instead the community is guided by 24 spiritual principles.
In 2001, Becca Stevens began a body care company to give jobs to survivors. What started with a powerful vision and a pot of melted candle wax has grown into one of the nation’s premiere social enterprises with over 30,000 customers. Over the past four years, Thistle Farms earned revenue has grown more than 140%. In 2016, the $2,000,000 sales mark was passed and survivors earned more than $850,000 in wages through four Thistle Farms social enterprises.
A community of survivors who believe love heals.
