On Saturday. November 20, we opened our doors to our forever home, The Delores Barr Weaver Campus of Hope! Located on 515 E. Ninth St. between the Springfield & Eastside of Jacksonville, this $2 million dollar campus is 36,000-square-foot and will enable the hiring of four times more survivors and an additional counselor to help them recover from human trafficking. It will also house job training in retail, logistics, business, sewing, warehouse management, and toffee production. With the new space and resulting expansion, Rethreaded hopes to have hired a total of 500 survivors by 2031
“This place will truly help us in our mission to provide survivors of human trafficking with the help and resources they need to put their lives back together.” (Kristin Keen, Founder, and CEO)
“To me this building represents the future — the future for women who will walk through these doors with a new hope, a new opportunity, and a new community giving them the space to build a new life.” (Stephanie Patton, Assistant Manager of Business Development)
We want to give a special thank you to our donors. Without you guys, none of this would be possible.
Delores Barr Weaver, Vystar Credit Union, the Chartrand family, Martin and Misty Eltrich, VyStar Credit Union, Adecco Foundation, Higher Pixels, Community First Credit Union, Earthworks, and the Jacksonville community. Rethreaded also received a $250,000 state appropriation in 2019 that was applied to the purchase price.
