About Un-Shackled By Love 

 
Here at Un-Shackled By love, our mission is to LOVE back to life, set-free, restore and equip women who have been victims of Human Trafficking, The Sex Industry and Addiction, to live healthy, hopeful and Christ centered lives.
We were founded in the month of December 2015, as a 501c3 charitable non-profit 12-24-month residential program. We long to provide a safe, and secure environment in which female victims will receive physical, emotional, and spiritual healing, while learning the skills necessary for self-reliance and reintegration into society.
 
       We have two phases of our program:
 
  • Phase 1 lasts 12-months, takes place at the Hosea House, and it is divided into two sections: 8 months of deep inner heart healing, and 4 months of transitional preparation.
  • Phase 2 lasts 12-18-months, takes place at the Alabaster House, and this is where residents will continue to develop in a structured environment. They will commit to part time program, find part-time/full-time employment, obtain higher education, go to recovery meetings, focus on money management, and obtain a place of their own.
