At Connect 2 Change, we offer urgent housing solutions tailored to the needs of women survivors of sexual exploitation. Our approach is two-fold, ensuring immediate safety and long-term support:
Immediate Safety: We collaborate closely with our hotel partners to provide an immediate shelter for women survivors. This ensures that they have a safe and secure place to stay, free from the dangers of their past.
My Sister’s House
International Rescue Committee
Community Against Sexual Harm
Long-Term Connections: Through our extensive network of community partners, we link our women to a range of housing options. This includes access to alternative shelters, transitional living arrangements, and other community-based programs designed specifically for this vulnerable population. These connections are vital for helping our survivors rebuild their lives and regain their independence.
Roughly 50% of homeless women attribute their homelessness to domestic violence as the immediate cause. This issue disproportionately impacts homeless mothers, with over 90% reporting severe physical or sexual assault during their lifetimes.
Our approach is rooted in the belief that stable housing is a fundamental human right, and we work tirelessly to address the unique needs and challenges of those we serve. Connect 2 Change collaborates with local communities, government agencies, and other non-profit organizations to ensure that our housing solutions have a lasting and positive impact on the lives of those we support. Together, we are creating a pathway to a brighter and more secure future for all.
