05 Mar ABC Interview-Catherine’s Cottage
Posted at 18:33h in Uncategorized
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.
