CAN YOU HELP?
We are in need of transitional housing so we can continue to serve more women in the safe house. We are looking for another home in Jessamine County, Ky.
Do you have a house, duplex, condo, farm in Nicholasville Kentucky you are willing to donate or small fee toward our ministry?
What makes us different?
We are not just about recovery. We are a donor based program who believes when women heals from trauma, abuse, abandonment and rejection then these women can move into freedom. We are here to help women deal with the areas of trauma that caused them to want to numb the pain through the use of drugs. Addiction is a symptom of pain.
Breaking Free Ministry recognizes that women need stability . Our safe house provides a home environment allowing them to feel safe yet work on their own personal issues through counseling and group activities.
END OF YEAR CAMPAIGN! LET'S DO IT TOGETHER!
We are launching our CAPITAL Campaign. Our goal is to fund an additional transitional home and create another safe house for additional women. We also have the ability to renovate a 10,000 Square foot building which will serve women in a short term program (30 days before they come to long term. Our goal is help them come away from abuse, addiction and rescue them from human trafficking and sex exploitation. We serve women in the TOP 2 ORGANIZED CRIME in the US- Addiction and Human Trafficking.
That’s why our goal for this campaign is to raise $175,000. If we raise that amount, we’ll be able to provide shelter, trauma counseling, life skills, jobs and education for more than 75 more women this year than last year. We need your help to make it happen.
Would you be willing to make a special donation to help us meet our goal and bring women from the darkness? We simply can’t do it without you. Your support will make a real, lasting impact in the lives of those who are still in need.
Read their stories below:
Our resident, W., age 25, came out of human trafficking and prostitution. Her captor beat her to submission. Until she came to us 4 months ago, she never knew her own identity. She suffered from the Stockholm Syndrome. Since coming to our program, she has accepted Christ as her Savior. She is developing Christian support through discipleship. She now is working through the trauma with a Christian counselor, learning life skills and getting her GED! And for the first time in 4 years since she was trafficked, at Thanksgiving she got to see her daughter who is now 7 years old!
Another resident, M., age 45, recently started a real job for the first time in 10 years and we are helping her to establish financial goals and working to move into her own place. During the 10 months she has been here, she has restored her relationship with her daughter and family and for the first time in 19 years is spending the holidays, Thanksgiving and Christmas with family!
Every day, your support makes stories like W. and M. possible.
Resident J. "I feel safe here because my life was filled with abuse and homelessness. I was a paraprofessional for many years before illness struck and caused a downward spiral. Now I am learning to live a normal life and learning how to walk out of shame and condemnation, learning new skills and coping mechanisms to move into freedom".
Resident R. "I wandered from place to place after an abusive situation always looking over my shoulder. I never felt wanted. I never knew God loved me. For the first time, I feel loved and know my life has meaning!"
A Note from Our Executive Director
This Book will CHANGE your Life!
Grab a Copy!
I wanted to share that my book is now out! It is a book on identity in Christ and has stories (yes!) from women and men who were broken and God intervened in their brokenness through anger, adoption, addiction, death, mental illness, self -esteem and plain brokenness and brought them to who they are today! You can get it off HERE!!! It is has a study guide at the end of each chapter and additional scriptures for study on forgiveness, freedom, love, restoration,and being enough! Can we relate to any of those? If you have family or friends dealing with some of those issues or are in addiction or recovering, it is a great book to see how God can restore! Much love! I would love to come and share with you about this journey and will even do a book signing!
