The Phoenix Dream Center is hosting an open house to help make the community more aware of its efforts to rebuild the lives of young women who are victims of human trafficking.
The open house will highlight the Center’s Rescue Project program, featuring 7 Dream Rooms, which are converted hotel rooms that have been transformed by some of the Valley’s top luxury home builders, architects, and interior designers to provide safe spaces for women who are just coming off the Valley streets or escaping from their pimps.
These are custom rooms, fully furnished and all unique. Everything in these rooms has all been generously donated. These much needed renovations will mean an increase in the quality and quantity of service capability and would allow for a total improved capacity 40 Survivors and 6 infants of survivors enabling them to come in off of the street or out of the dangerous situations they are in. At the same time, NRG Energy funded a Wellness Center on campus to help expedite the healing the process.

The community is invited to this open house on June 21, 2014 starting at 10 AM going until 1PM. The Phoenix Dream Center is located at, 3210 NW Grand Avenue, Phoenix, AZ 85017.
About the Rescue Project
The Rescue Project, the flagship program of the Phoenix Dream Center, is a national leader in the rescue, recovery and advocacy of human trafficking survivors. The Rescue Project was created to rescue and rebuild the shattered lives of young women rescued from commercial sexual exploitation through human trafficking.
Over the past 5 years, The Rescue Project has rescued over 190 girls and young women from lives of human trafficking. We have helped girls as young as 14 years of age escape their traffickers and begin to rebuild their lives. 30% of the young women coming into the program are pregnant, and typically have their babies while a part of the program.
The comprehensive in-house program provides access to medical, mental health care, and legal services and helps these young women relearn healthy choices, develop accountability and refine life and workplace skills. For pregnant girls and new mothers, we also offer classes on what to expect during pregnancy, parenting classes and career guidance for teen moms reintegrating in society. We provide all food, clothing, medical treatment, legal aid, educational assistance, job and life skills training free of charge.
For the media, interviews will be available with experts in the local human trafficking issue as well as with victims who are in transition.
