Redeeming Joy was founded by Lanie George to provide a safe place of healing that offered integrated services for women over the age of 18 who have survived human trafficking.
George, a victim of trafficking herself, knows first hand what services are needed. Redeeming Joy was part of #GivingTuesdayCLT in 2016 for the very first time. The organization had just acquired a restoration house for its clients and used the campaign to create awareness for sex trafficking, but also to raise funds to furnish and decorate the house to make it a home.
"[Through the campaign] we gained more awareness in the community and got our restoration house furnished and decorated," George said.
The house was furnished and decorated in December. The photos below (click to enlarge) show Redeeming Joy was able to accomplish through #GivingTuesdayCLT.
