The "Journey of Grace" Human Trafficking Survivor Retreat is held several times a year for women 18 years of age and older who have been trafficked in the United States, been 'out of the life' for at least two years and who are not currently in any residential program for trafficking or addiction. This retreat is the next step in the journey of grace. The retreat is ideal for those who want to become not just survivors, but Thrivers and have already done hard work to heal. It is for those who need a little boost in their healing, who want to develop supportive relationships with other survivors and mentors and who are willing to work a little and love a lot.
The weekend is a combination of letting go, having fun and laughing, working hard on your inner self and working through triggers. There are massages, hair cuts and make overs, as well as classes on releasing your anger and forgiveness, nutrition, self defense and how to tell your story as well as group exercises on building trust. Each retreat is different and focuses on a different part of healing. The weekend is totally FREE but dependent upon our funding. If you aren't selected this time, we hope you will apply again. Space is limited. The location is in a safe place and everything is included. If you live far, we will also try to get you to the retreat for free as well. If you are accepted, please note that you will receive a group email along with the other survivors who will be attending. If you need your information to remain private, please let us know.
New 2019 & 2020: We are partnering with F.R.E.E., a program of the University of Toledo Human Trafficking and Social Justice Institute. They will be offering career assessment, an 8 week virtual readiness class, and scholarships. This funding is available if you want to take a class, get your license or certification in something, go to a technical or regular college, just about anything. If you are interested in financial funding for advancing your career, starting a new one this is your gateway to a new future.
