Only 1% of trafficked victims are rescued. In the Harrisburg area, survivors often find refuge in short-term care facilities, like domestic violence programs, homeless shelters, and emergency shelters. Many of these programs are not equipped to care for the specific needs of individuals who have been trafficked, which frequently results in survivors returning to the streets, and for most, returning to their captivity.
A long-term care facility, tailored to the specific needs of trafficked survivors, is vital. Greenlight Operation is working to meet that need by opening the first restoration home in Cumberland County for women who have been sex trafficked.
The home will house 5-8 women for 6-12 months. Upon arrival, survivors will be enrolled in Greenlight Operation’s restoration program. Our program will provide individualized, holistic care, which will include trauma therapy, counseling, and courses that equip each woman to live an independent and sustainable lifestyle.
We need your support to make this a reality. If you want to partner with Greenlight Operation’s restoration home project, consider donating to our property fund. Each gift brings a woman closer to freedom.
