HER FREEDOM RUN...50 Miles to Freedom August 7-October 1, 2021
The steps to recovery look and feel impossible.
Experiencing freedom after being trafficked is not a sprint. For most women, recovering their lives is an arduous marathon. Financial challenges, legal issues, addictions, family difficulties...the struggle looms before them, and they often face it all alone.
Freedom House, a safe place to land, is crucial.
Once fully funded, Freedom House will be a safe house for survivors to live while they rebuild their lives. Having such a secure place can be the difference between a woman reentering life whole and healthy or getting caught in destructive conditions again

HOW IT WORKS?
"Frantic, terrified but driven by the instinct of a "Mama Bear", Ms. Santana embarked on this journey of rescue. By some sheer miracle and the help of her community, Ms. Santana's daughter was rescued by the FBI just days later, from a family of traffickers. Ms. Santana states that the journey toward healing and recovery has not been an easy one for her daughter and her inspiration for creating DIVAS Who Win Freedom Center is anchored in the hope that girls and women would never face such dire circumstances again....alone."
