WorldCrafts artisan partner The WellHouse just outside Birmingham, Alabama, seeks to honor our Father by providing rescue and opportunities for restoration to women who have survived human trafficking and specifically sexual exploitation. The WellHouse never charges residents for living quarters, therapy, case management, and other services.
The Impact of The WellHouse
WorldCrafts partnership with The WellHouse has enabled many of the residents’ consistent work in the jewelry making program. The women are able to earn a wage, develop consistent job skills training, and build a sense of confidence and community. In addition, as the pieces are sold and circulated, awareness of the issue of human trafficking and the mission of The WellHouse increases. The awareness will continue to help address the egregious crime and increase the likelihood of healing for many more.
DL was a survivor of both labor and sex trafficking. She was very insecure and unprepared to reenter public spaces. She began working in a quiet space on bracelets. Thanks to WorldCrafts, she was able to make many pieces of jewelry and even found she had a flair for design and marketing. She eventually applied for a management position in the jewelry-making program and excelled at the cataloging, inventory, and scheduling of the program. After a year, she was able to take a new job outside of the program and has done very well at it. She continues to thrive.
