Hours of counseling and therapy for survivors, ensuring their mental well-being
Medical appointments to ensure their physical health

“I was on the streets for 28 years and a friend told me about the program. They loved me until I could love myself.”
“It was very difficult to get a job because of my police record. Thistle Farms gave me a job. They let me work the register and be accountable for money. They allowed me the opportunity to develop job skills.”
“The most important part of my life is that my kids and me are together. I’m a mother and a homeowner; I never thought in the beginning that that could happen.”
To date, 40+ organizations nationwide have created programs based on Thistle Farms’ model of recovery.
That means more women survivors are getting the help and love they need to turn their life around.
