Thistle Farms is a community of women who have survived prostitution, trafficking and addiction. Founded by the Rev. Becca Stevens, Thistle Farms began in 1997 as a residential program called Magdalene. In an effort to offer residents and graduates both economic support and job skills training, Thistle Farms’ social enterprises began in 2001. The organization utilizes a comprehensive model for healing from sexual abuse, trauma, and addiction. Residents experience transformative, sustainable change through two years of rent-free housing, physical and mental health treatment, case-management, education, training, and employment opportunities. The agency’s goals/outcomes for the year include: 15 of 16 (94%) management team members will receive or continue training on trauma informed care and leadership to ensure the organization is united in a common philosophy, language, and best practices for maintaining a compassionate living and work environment. 8 of 10 (80%) new residents will complete intensive outpatient therapy or inpatient treatment within six months of entering the program.
