Public facts about Latishas House
Dedicated to helping women trapped in negative circumstances or exploited by the sex industry find their way home, Latisha’s House provides a long-term, trauma informed safe house for victims of sex trafficking. Once safe, the ladies acquire the tools to live healthy and productive lives. They are no longer victims but over-comers.
The sex industry has many components and is tied to slavery all around the world. Regardless of whether entrapment is the lure of a fast buck in a strip club, the money from prostitution by force or by choice, or tied to gangs or organized crime, the sex industry objectifies women and destroys their lives. Drug addiction, STDs, psychological abuse, and criminal convictions are compounding factors that make it hard, if not impossible to escape.
There is hope! With a safe place to stay, medical help, trauma informed counseling, education, job training, life skills, and spiritual development, women can begin anew.
Latisha’s House Foundation is a holistic centered organization that seeks to build safe houses for women all over the United States.
