Office:

  • white noise machine for privacy during therapy  
  • short (3-4 shelf) bookcase, black, white or gray preferred. 
  •  

BIGGEST NEED: Two or more apartments – the use of which is donated or offered for low rent- in the inner loop (Downtown Nashville as center, Briley as outer loop) for short term shelter for just released human trafficking victims. This warm welcoming place (as opposed to a cheap hotel which triggers bad memories, where exploiters often abound) allows survivors to debrief and work together with us to make plans for next steps, without the immediate need to get a job and make money. 

Short term shelter is by far our largest expense and the funds go to a far from ideal remedy. Help us change that! 

 

Survivor Needs:

Thanks to your great generosity, we have an abundance of supplies for survivors and have no room to store more at present. The only exceptions are:

  • Hair straighteners 
  • Cell phones with SIM cards
  • Kits for new rescues: WE HAVE ENOUGH AT PRESENT  Please use the drawstring bags noted- they really help with our limited storage space. Thanks! These small drawstring bags are ever so much more space efficient for our limited storage area. Bags are available on Amazon or we can provide if needed.
  • Reliable cars – only being able to live and get jobs with reasonable access to bus lines is quite limiting.
  • Gift cards for immediate survivor needs -   Walmart, restaurants, gas, Kroger, Visa, Mastercard

     Please note: We cannot accept  clothing donations except as specifically listed here
    Please do NOT bring the following (we have plenty for now and insufficient storage space for more.) shampoo, lotion, soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, hairbrushes

Sponsorships or items for :

  •  birthdays for our girls and women- it’s time to lavish them with love! : Sponsor a gift, restaurant meal, party supplies  (amounts can vary but generally about $100-$150) Donate as usual, select “Direct Aid to Victims” in category and shoot us a note at the same time, saying it is for a birthday girl (info@endslaverytn.org

    With gratitude from us and those we serve-

One Responseso far.
