Located in the San Francisco Bay Area, Freedom House is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization (Tax ID #27-0248325), with a mission to bring hope, restoration, and a new life to survivors of human trafficking by providing housing and direct services. In August 2010, Freedom House launched The Monarch, the first "safe house" and long-term aftercare program of its kind in Northern California for adult female survivors of human trafficking. The Nest, located in Santa Clara County, is one of the few residential shelters in the country dedicated to helping girls ages 12 to 17 who have endured commercial sexual exploitation. Through its pioneering aftercare model, Freedom House is breaking the cycle of human exploitation and creating new futures for human-trafficking survivors.
