The purpose of Building Hope Communities is to transform lives by providing safe and restorative transitional housing for survivors of sex trafficking. We accomplish this by involving the whole community to bring together individuals, corporations, churches, and other non-profit organizations to help fund/build the housing for these women and their children.
The housing in this community will be for women (and their children) who have graduated from the Wellspring Living program. Wellspring Living was founded by Mary Frances Bowley in 2001, and is a non-profit dedicated to rescuing and preventing the sexual exploitation of women and children. She is a leader in bringing the fight against child sex-trafficking to Atlanta and is a founding member of the Georgia Statewide Human Trafficking Task Force. She is also the author of three books, ‘A League of Dangerous Women’, ‘The White Umbrella’, and her latest book, ‘Make It Zero’. Mary Frances has been a valuable partner to help get this first Wellspring Hope Community started. You can learn more about her organization at www.wellspringliving.org
