About Homewood Antiques
"Our Goal is to fight Human Trafficking"
Interstate I-20 is a highly traveled road that goes through our city that is well-known for human trafficking. Our goal is to help the survivors who have been rescued from this growing business by giving back and to grow the awareness of what is now reported to be a $150 billion industry worldwide and $9.5 billion yearly in the U.S. A trafficker can make $150,00-$200,00 per girl each year. The average trafficker handles 4-6 girls.
Our owner became aware of these facts early 2017 when she was working on a pop-up event for the store. She knew she would have to help in some way. After hours of research she was inspired to give back and the website was created. The two organizations below will be recieving a portion of each sale from our website.
The WellHouse is a rescue and recovery organization for women who are victims of sexual exploitation and trafficking. If you or someone you know needs The WellHouse, please do not hesitate to call them toll-free at 1-800-991-0948 Their phone line is answered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by a trained and caring rescue coordinator who truly wants to help you.
Thistle Farms' mission is to heal, empower, and employ women survivors of trafficking, prostitution, and addiction. They do this by providing safe and supportive housing, the opportunity for economic independence, and a strong community of advocates and partners. They believe that in the end, love is the most powerful force for change in the world.
