Refuge for Women Chicago is a non-profit, faith-based organization that provides long-term care for women who have escaped human trafficking or sexual exploitation at no charge to the residents. We offer up to 12 months of safe housing with 24/7 staffing as they progress through evidence-based, trauma-informed programming. The compassionate staff is trained to help residents work through the program to reclaim their identities and reach their goals to overcome addictions, heal from trauma and develop life skills leading to healthy, balanced living and financial independence. Refuge for Women strives to help each woman complete the program with a vision for her future, equipped to succeed and sustain a life marked with dignity and hope.
Our Chicago area home opened in 2016, we have impacted the lives of 28 women. Our graduates have been reunited with their children and families, secured jobs, are going to school, and are advocates in the fight against the sex trade. We desire to reach more women, their families, and our communities with new beginnings.
The purpose of our Roaring 20's Fundraiser Ball is to celebrate graduate and resident victories and to raise $50,000 towards:
Join us in bringing new beginnings to sexually exploited women by attending our Roaring 20's Fundraiser Ball on November 14, 2020!
