Mission Statement

Our mission is to create a sanctuary, a place of peace, for survivors of human trafficking. Within these walls, healing takes root. We employ evidence based practices and trauma-informed care, routinely training and Our mission is to create a sanctuary, a place of peace, for survivors of human trafficking.

Description

In 2013, the seed of an idea for Sanctum House - a Live-In Recovery Program for Women Survivors of Human Trafficking - was born.

Edee Franklin, our Founder, felt an inspired calling to stand with neglected and often forgotten women in need. As a courageous survivor of addiction herself, Edee better understood the recovery challenges faced by those who’ve escaped drugs and addiction, especially those caught in the web of human trafficking.

Inspired by the success of similar housing initiatives across the US, Sanctum House took shape-a sanctuary where survivors could rediscover their strength and reclaim their autonomy.

In 2014, a grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) became our launchpad, enabling us to acquire and renovate Sanctum House. With these funds, we transformed an assisted living facility into our first survivors’ residence.

With a foundation in place, a caring community, and dedicated volunteers, we equipped ourselves to welcome our very first Human Trafficking Survivor Resident. In February 2018, supported by friends, family, and a loving community, we opened the doors of our two-year recovery program.

In the years since, we’ve provided resources for hundreds of women. In 2022, we were honored with grants from both the Federal and State Governments, funding our upcoming expansion and grants to help with operational costs, respectively. With the unwavering support of our community, our capacity will soon grow nearly threefold.
