From providing a safe house residential program for six eligible survivors to operating a drop in resource center for human trafficking survivors in North County San Diego that gives our survivor sisters necessary items, food, and a safe place to gain support from their peers and mentors, the Alabaster Jar Project team is hard at work helping women restore and rebuild their lives. We do all we can to have a positive impact on the rehabilitation of all of our women and your donations make this possible.
We have been fortunate to receive contributions from many local organizations. Here are some of the more recent endeavors:
The Women’s Club of Vista has made a donation that will provide bus passes for six survivors for four months. As the Grace House residents gain independence by starting school and looking for work, not to mention going to therapy and other appointments that are necessary to their healing, transportation is vital to their budding independence.
The Soroptimists of Vista have made a donation that will go towards a weekly stipend for survivors at the Grace House residential program for the next ten months. It is a small stipend, but will allow the survivors some freedom as they go about rebuilding their lives. Many women come out of the life of exploitation with little more than the clothes on their backs, let alone any personal necessities, so to have this small weekly stipend can make a big difference in their daily lives.
Learn more about how you can impact lives by visiting our Donate page (alabasterjarproject.org/donate) where we have listed several monthly donations that can impact survivors on an ongoing basis. Monthly recurring donations help us to budget and provide consistent services. No amount is too small. Here are some of the ways your donation helps us:
$50 provides one survivor with therapy for a month
$100 provides one survivor with groceries for a month
$500 covers a month’s housing expenses for one survivor
$2,000 provides complete sponsorship for one survivor for a month.
We believe that the community of survivor sisters that we nurture is invaluable to the greater community of San Diego. We encourage our supporters to make a monthly donation because we cannot do all we do without your gifts. Alabaster Jar project thanks all of its donors that have kept us going since we started so that we can keep making a difference in the lives of the women we serve as as we strive to restore, rehabilitate, and empower them.
