Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Survivor Leadership who help support the most vulnerable to human trafficking victims, many times need extra care for their own mind, body, soul health. And all Survivor Leaders, no matter what field they operate in, need support, continued care, space & time to regroup and meet with likeminded people who have done healing work. Without that network of multimodal support, burn out becomes a very real thing. Situations can trigger memories and without support, processing a memory can be challenging & can halt progress in life.

Freedom Sanctuary

Freedom Sanctuary works with Survivor Leadership by providing opportunities for healing for those working with victims escaping trafficking and cults. Our role is to provide a launch pad for their future by offering a quiet space for contemplation & rest. Along with practical actionable steps to continued therapy and healing modalities, as well as skills & career education as an entrepreneur or in a survivor owned business.

Workshop: Parts of 'SELF' separate during trauma & that helped us survive. Now we need to unravel that survival mechanism, reconnecting dimensionally.
The trauma you are healing from didn't happen overnight. Healing comes in cycles. You have to be patient with the process.
Knowing that you are taking action steps on the daily towards your goal, will allow you to relax into healing and allow it to happen.
Small easy action steps, added slowly into your life, over time, will help create new stories.
Your mystical/ spiritual Starseed & Empaths purpose/path will UNFOLD as you begin to take action! Action is Magick!

Education Activation Practice

Freedom Sanctuary measures success with several key metrics including; length of stay, attendance to personalized program requirements, number of completed counseling sessions, attendance of holistic healing practices, personal goals assessments at entry and exit, other metrics for mental health like the CAPS and PDS, earning a legal income, receiving GED, attending higher education or trade school, length of sobriety and having secured stable housing after our services are no longer needed. We measure organizational success by the support received both in-kind and donations, volunteer time, and increased capacity to care for those in need.

We have a fully functioning safe home set up with protocols for all levels of anticipated engagement, insurance, security, volunteers, therapists, and more.

In 2018, VGS housed three cult survivors and operated as a safe home for their time of need. All three survivors have moved onto successful stages of life. Two own functioning businesses and the third is working in a start up firm as a founder and will be launching her business in 2021. Our 6 bed safe home increases capacity for survivors in San Diego by 15%. Every guest is given the tools to heal and time to discover their purpose. We educate, inspire and inform the public so we may grow into a village of tiny homes by 2025.

Data
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
