ABC Interview-Catherine’s Cottage

 The International Labor Organization estimates that there are 4.5 million people trapped in forced sexual exploitation globally.  For those who have survived human trafficking, Catherine’s Cottage hopes to be a beacon of light. It’s a place where survivors can re-enter society and take their lives back.
Thanks to The Salvation Army, a team of five designers, contractors, businesses, organizations and the Catherine’s Cottage is closer to becoming a reality.
Survivors will be offered counseling, support groups, spiritual discovery and life skills classes thanks in part to the dedication of Shamere McKenzie, a survivor herself and the Salvation Army’s anti-trafficking program director.
Here is a link to learn more about the program and take a sneak peek into the design direction we are taking to make guests feel welcome and safe.
