Most of our operating and project costs at Worthwhile Wear are funded through individual, business, and foundation giving. We appreciate the support of our donors and rely on their generosity in the fight against human trafficking. Here are a few key needs for 2017:
General Operating Funds
General operating fund donations keep the lights on, pay salaries for our modest staff, and cover insurance and other day-to-day expenses. A gift to this fund gives us the discretion to use the donation for a variety of needs.
Our residential safe home provides housing, food, trauma counseling, and much more for up to two years for survivors of sex trafficking. The first 90 days of counseling are the most critical. Our goal is to help participants work through past trauma and realize their true worth and value.
$1,000 = 90 days of counseling for one woman; $100 = one week of food for one person
Our new Education and Counseling Center needs equipment that can be used for vocational training and education. Worthwhile Wear also needs funds for improving our website and establishing a database. (In-kind donations for the Center cane be made HERE.)
$700-$950 = a desktop computer; $250 = a wireless Internet hub; $75-$100 = a printer; $5,000 = website and database costs
Purchasing a new or used passenger van will safely carry participants to GED training, doctors’ appointments, drug counseling, job training, and a variety of other therapeutic services.
$15,000-$29,000 = a used or new van; $500 = 1 month of transportation expenses at The Well
The "Donate" button will take you directly to our online donation page where your can make gift choices from the dropdown or in the "Contribution Note" box. Thank you!
We raised over $40,000 during our fundraising campaign to finish renovating the Education and Counseling Center!
