I recently spoke with Debbie Matis of Rebirth Homes in Riverside, California about what they have been currently achieving, and what their needs are since we will be donating all net proceeds to RH until September 7th. RH houses Riverside County victims of sex trafficking in a protective, healing and nurturing environment for 2 years, AND IT'S ALREADY WORKING!
In the 10 months since the first home opened, Debbie has been amazed at how quickly they have been able to help 21 women heal and move forward in reaching their personal goals. 11 women are living in the supervised house and 10 are being helped by Rebirth Homes to varying degrees. RH is more than a house, it's a home of healing. You can feel the warmth and relief in Debbie's voice as she talks about seeing women transform; who have come from a place of no hope - to leaping forward to hoping and dreaming again. These women finally feel free to dream of a future - as some finish high school and others enter college and attain jobs. Rebirth Homes is there to help them achieve their personal goals that before seemed washed away with their tears.
As you can imagine, it takes many resources to keep this organization running. They need our help and Debbie makes sure to state that even $5 makes a difference in being able to provide the necessities these women need on their way to recovery. Food is of course the highest cost, so all Heroes 4 Victims net proceeds will be currently going toward filling that need. There are other opportunities to help though. If you wish to do something more, or your family or organization would like to help RH grow toward greater sustainability, please contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org or 951-394-8142 to find out how you can do that. RH is also in need of part time and full time employees and volunteers. These positions are also listed on their site.
