The Idea

Jaida is the Founder and Executive Director of Freedom House, the first shelter in Northern California for adult female survivors of human trafficking. A visionary and inspiration in the fight against modern day slavery, Jaida is making a difference, one life at a time.

The Specifics

Freedom House provides a safe home and a new life for survivors of human trafficking. Jaida and the staff help meet the basic needs of these women (providing them food, clothing, housing) and connect them to much-needed resources (including social service, medical, legal, psychological, emotional, and spiritual). These women come to Freedom House with absolutely nothing, so $1000 can go a long way. It can provide housing for 8 women for two weeks. It can feed 8 women for one month. Even though the road to recovery is difficult, Jaida believes that together we can bring survivors hope and a new life. One survivor said: “Before I came to Freedom House House I was in a very dark place. Thank you Freedom House for bringing me back to life.”
