Human Trafficking is $32 billion a year industry and a form of modern-day slavery that subjects women, children and men to force, fraud or coercion for the purpose of commercial sexual exploitation or forced labor.
75% - 95% of prostituted women were sexually abused as children.
90% of women want to leave the sex industry but don’t have access to jobs.
Rethreaded started with a simple idea, and a strong passion from it’s founder Kristin Keen. Beginning by forming relationships with women on the street and making prison visits, she knew the biggest need was for a safe, supportive work environment where these women could earn money while learning a skill and experiencing continued healing through community. Working in partnership with the City Rescue Mission, Rethreaded hired its first full-time employee in November 2012.
