Participant Update

December has fast approached us and the Christmas season is upon us as the home. Christmas carols were sung and stockings were hung as the participants worked together to bring holiday cheer directly to their living room. The Christmas tree is sparkling and I sat in the living room only to be covered by glitter and sparkles from ornaments that I don’t think I will be able to get off for at least the month of December. Everyone is excited, and a little nervous about the holidays and all that brings. From family connections to the missing connections in our lives, this is the time of year these things come up and we have many cheerful events planned to bring Christmas home to each and every participant of SafeHope Home

Letter from SafeHope Home Staff Member

Most of us could never come close to imagining what these young women have been through in their lives of being trafficked.  We often take for granted the simple freedoms that come naturally to us all.  Like the freedom to choose what we want to wear for the day, walk out the door without feeling like we are being watched or followed or even being able to attend to our own hygiene when we want. These are just to name a few.  Everything these courageous women have experienced while being trafficked is relived day and night.  Our team at SafeHope is dedicated to helping each individual woman adjust day to day and learn regular routines that many regular people just see as standard and customary.  They learn the life skills that work for them finding a healthy and practical way to live a new life after trafficking. Even though they all have their individual strengths, talents, and gifts – here are a few things that I admire – there is this ferocious sense of independence, deep gratitude for those who don’t judge and help, an immediate willingness to give back, and a great will to survive.   They are tired when they come to us, some saying they are feeling defeated – but no – they are reminded they have fought honourably in a battle that many women do not have the opportunity to make it out alive.  They are my heroes.

Christmas Sponsorship
This Christmas, we are hoping to get the community involved in supporting young women in need and their families through our Holiday Sponsorship Program.

" In my last blog post, I spoke about the issues that I’ve been having with my mental health. This week, I thought I would speak about what I’ve been doing to cope and pull myself out of this negative headspace. One thing that has been really helpful is recommitting to addiction support groups. Through the pandemic, these support groups began taking place online. Although I am grateful that I was still able to attend them, they weren’t quite the same as in-person meetings. I’m beyond happy that I am able to attend these support groups in person now, it makes me feel like I’m a part of something. Attending in-person meetings helps me feel more connected to the other individuals in attendance. I also find it a lot easier to stay focused throughout the meeting."
