Sex trafficking is the third largest and fastest growing crime worldwide. It is becoming increasingly clear that "choice" is a myth for many prostituted women - childhood sexual abuse and poverty are leading indicators. Due to this vulnerability, women often find themselves trapped in a cycle of violence, addiction and exploitation. Jasmine Road, an affiliate of Thistle Farms in Nashville, TN, believes that helping women take back control of their lives is not just a moral imperative, it pays community dividends by keeping them off the streets and out of jail. The mission of Jasmine Road is to offer women a path to freedom, a haven for healing and the opportunity to flourish. The program offers two-year, rent-free housing, employment opportunities through a planned social enterprise, and holistic, wrap-around services for women needing help in our community.
