Opening home 4 trafficked survivors

$2,213 of $600,000 goal

Raised by 34 people in 25 months
Where does a woman go once she has been trafficked and been left for dead?

I am Franciscan Sister Shirley Fineran.  Please join the critical need to provide a home and therapeutic healing for adult women who have been sex trafficked.  The Siouxland Restoration Center's mission is to develop Lila Mae's House to help women survivors live the rest of their lives the best they can with what they have experienced.  It would be a blessing to receive your gift to save the lives and spirit of women we will serve.

The money that is needed at this time will be used to build and furnish 5 bedrooms, 2 full baths, remodel a summer room to a year-round room with an upper deck,  acquire and maintain appliances and furnishings.   Staff trained in the complex trauma of  human trafficking will be hired to support the survivors.

You can be certain your donation will help save a woman's life and future.  She will know that she is worthy and loved.

Thank you!

Progress is being made on the renovation/construction of the bedrooms and bathrooms in the basement! The guys are almost done framing and pretty soon the windows will be cut out! Donations go directly to the costs associated with construction!

Thanks to those who shared this gofundme!
Any day I get more money coming in than bills in the mail (for architect, utilities, insurance, security - yes, we are paying those bills already) is a good day!
Thanks so much!
