Thistle Farms Giving

At Thistle Farms we believe it takes a community to help women heal. We freely offer food, housing, medical care, therapy, case management, referrals, job and leadership training and more to survivors of trafficking, prostitution, addiction and homelessness -- and we take no government funding. We welcome you to be a part of this community of healing with your gift.

Online gifts will receive an immediate automatic tax acknowledgement for your records. If appropriate, select a category for your gift. 

  • In Honor or in Memory: To have a card notification sent of your gift (amount won't be specified).   
  • Pledge Payment: To credit a gift towards a prior pledge.
  • Other Categories: To help a specific Thistle Farms program.
