Review for San Francisco Safehouse, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

San Francisco SafeHouse is a healing community that works with some of the most invisible and forgotten people of our city: women of all ages who are homeless victims of sexual exploitation, prostitution and human trafficking. At SafeHouse, we make women stronger and more independent and work with them, one on one, to help them plan for their futures and then execute those plans. We began reaching out to the women of the streets in 1998, long before "trafficking" was a commonly recognized issue.
I worked at SafeHouse for 5 years and am now continuing my connection by serving on the Board. I especially appreciate that such a small program can offer such personalized care and make such a big impact on individual lives. My own contribution to SafeHouse is overshadowed by what was given back: a chance to meet and work with an incredible group of very brave, very determined and unique women, each taking change one step at a time.
