Program 1

LifeWay Network Safe Housing Program

LifeWay’s Safe Housing Program offers safe housing for women survivors of human trafficking. Providing both long-term transitional housing and short-term emergency beds, LifeWay’s safe housing is specifically dedicated to both domestic and foreign-born survivors (age 18+) of both labor and sex trafficking.

The program provides each woman with the security of a stable and supportive home and emphasizes the holistic healing of the survivor’s mind, body and spirit, enabling her to journey towards self-sufficiency and economic independence.
