Thistle Farms helps women grow through some of life’s most difficult circumstances. Their work demonstrates that people can suffer adversity and change their lives favorably with the support of a caring community. Please consider helping them help others grow through it!
Thistle Farms is a nonprofit social enterprise dedicated to helping women survivors recover and heal from prostitution, trafficking, and addiction. We do this by providing a safe place to live, a meaningful job, and a lifelong sisterhood of support.
We provide housing, case management, healthcare, counseling, education, and employment for two years – free of charge.
Our homes operate on a holistic model with no authority living in the house. Each one represents a community built on trust and love.
Love Heals. Five years after graduation, 75% of our graduates are living healthy, financially independent lives.
Meaningful employment leading to financial freedom is instrumental in the healing journey. Our 3 social enterprises – Body & Home, The Café, and Global Shared Trade – provide both gateway and permanent jobs for survivors, as well revenue for our mission.
