BENEFITING: The Arbor Charlottesville
EVENT DATE: Aug 31, 2015
The Arbor is a nonprofit organization that provides long-term housing and holistic aftercare services to adult, female, human trafficking survivors in Virginia, so that they may establish a community of healing and reclaim wholeness, freedom, and life. An arbor is a place of rest that offers shelter from the harshness of the sun. The word “arbor” also refers to a structure on which plants can grow toward the light. Our vision for this organization encompasses both of these definitions. As we offer services to human trafficking survivors, our hope is to first provide space for restoration and healing from the trauma of trafficking. But we also want to offer the structure of support that will allow each client to flourish, inhabit her own life, and grow into independence.
