You might not think that sex trafficking is a problem in this part of the country. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. Sex trafficking is an issue for communities around the country, and the victims are often children or young women.
Unchained Movement is a local non-profit, dedicated to raising awareness about this issue and helping victims of sex trafficking make a successful transition into a better life. Unchained is taking an important step forward with the opening of a residential facility – a home for survivors of sex trafficking between the ages of 18 and 24 years old.
Lee Company was honored to help Unchained get the home in great shape for the six young women who will be the first residents. Our expert team installed a shower/tub combo, faucets and a new sink, in addition to fixing a few other plumbing issues. (Thanks to our friends at Ferguson for donating the fixtures!) We also made the HVAC repairs required for inspection approval.
The Unchained facility is more than a house. It is a home. During their time in the Unchained program, the residents will receive therapeutic services, addiction recovery assistance, educational services, case management, and life skills and job readiness training.
Lee Company is honored to help non-profits in all the communities we serve. Thanks to everyone on the team who pitched in on this Unchained project!
