The Well of Lexington provides a holistic program of safe housing, recovery support, education, and healing for women exploited by sex trafficking to empower them to reach economic independence and live productive lives. We provide safe, supportive housing and comprehensive services free of charge for two years here in Lexington. The women live together, recover together and support each other.
We are currently looking for qualified volunteers to provide that education component by leading in-house groups or classes to the residents. The topics can range from things such as seeking safety, relapse prevention, anger management, domestic violence, character building, and more.
We are also in need of women volunteers to assist the residents in getting to daily appointments, meetings, and resources within the community. The times can vary during the day, evening, or weekends - so you can easily choose times that are convenient to you!
Don't have a lot of extra time but still want to volunteer? You can host a "fun night" for the women! This can be anything from going to the movies, to an at home spa day, ice cream outing, and more!
Interested in partnering within the community? You can volunteer with the Executive Director and help throw fundraising events to help raise money and awareness for our cause!Volunteers will need to sign a confidentiality agreement and submit to a background check (the cost is on us) before beginning. Just let me know which opportunity is of interest to you and we will go from there. We are excited and grateful to have you on our team, thank you for choosing The Well!
