LIFE IN THE HOME

Wings of Refuge is a safe place to heal and rebuild your life

after experiencing sexual exploitation or trafficking. 

To provide a safe and supportive environment to equip and

empower you to grow, heal, and attain your goals.

Our Purpose

HOLISTIC HEALING: MIND, BODY & SOUL

Trauma affects many things including your ability to cope and live an independent life.
Because trauma impacts all of you, healing must be holistic as well.

Our Hope

First 30 Days in the Safe Home

 

The first 30 days of the program will be deemed a discovery period and will give time to transition and adjust to a new way of living. We will work together to make sure all of the participants needs are being met. This time also provides the participant and staff an opportunity to determine readiness and willingness to do the work necessary to recover, restore, and rise.  

  • Progress in the program will be evaluated weekly during this discovery period and determinations will be made with participant and staff regarding continuation with the program. 

  • This decision will include an evaluation of the commitment and willingness to the program. 

  • If staff and/or the participant decides it is not in your best interest to stay in the program, staff will work with you to develop a safe transition plan and exit from the program.

 

What to expect during your first 30 days:

  • Orientation to program handbook and schedule

  • Orientation to personal and home contributions 

  • Health assessment

  • Schedule wellness checks including vision and dental

  • Assess and apply for any paperwork needs (medical insurance, photo ID, birth certificate, social security card, school records, safe at home address, SNAP benefits, etc.)

  • Work with staff to adjust to program/community and begin programming

    • Daily devotions

    • Physical activity 3-6 times a week

    • 1:1 programming

    • Group programming

  • Work with staff to develop life skills not yet acquired

  • Attend initial sessions with the director, therapist, and substance abuse counselor
