why safe housing matters

"It's more than a house, it is a home."

"It’s our way of finding our own purpose."

"It’s our way of being able to have time to process who we are."

It's our way of finding freedom, peace, love, and most of all dignity."

“The day I realized that children were being sold for sex every day, right here in the United States, I had to do something. Talking with Kristi and her team I realized my company, my people, my industry had the ability to help combat child trafficking. Every day, pest management professionals service millions of homes and businesses. We are the eyes and ears of the community. At Forshaw, we could do more than donate to the cause. We could be part of the solution by educating and empowering our partners to know the signs of trafficking and speak out. Saving just one girl or boy would be a victory.”


"Refuge for Women and Safe House Project continue to have a wonderful partnership. In 2020 Safe House Project was able to financially help Refuge for Women open Kentucky's first Emergency House for sex trafficking survivors. They have helped with physical items like mattresses and the education materials they produced have been fabulous. We value the partnership in a great way and look forward to working together in 2021."


"With help from Safe House Project REST was able to offer an innovative pathway to permanent housing for survivors, bringing freedom, safety, and hope to survivors of sexual exploitation." - Julie McNamara-Dahl, REST


"You bless me all the time...you got me off the street when I was in the cold, and you didn't even know who I was.You have given me the greatest gift already, you gave me HOPE.
You showed there is hope for humanity."
