Peoria Home is a sister community of Magdalene/Thistle Farms in Nashville, Tennessee and follows their successful program model. Magdalene was founded in 1997 with one home for women with a history of prostitution and drug addiction as a safe haven to recover from sexual abuse, violence and life on the streets. Magdalene stands in solidarity with women who have paid dearly for a culture that buy...s and sells women like commodities. The organization was founded to not only help a sub-culture of women, but to help change the culture itself. At no cost to the women, they offer a safe, disciplined and compassionate community for two years paid for by the gifts they receive from individuals and private grants. Magdalene now operates six homes and Thistle Farms for 1.4 million a year in operating expenses and continues to receive funding by community gifts, grants and the income from Thistle Farms.
Our project will be considerably smaller with only one home, but will also partner with agencies and individuals within the community to procure a house and implement the services needed to help rebuild lives.
