This Year's Project: Yard Tools

About Our Organization

The mission of Lila Mae's House is to provide a safe, healthy environment where adult survivors of sex trafficking can rest, heal, recover and develop life skills to become empowered, independent, self-sufficient women. Lila Mae's House offers a 24-month transitional living program that provides a safe, supportive and trauma-informed environment. Survivors will have coordinated care and assistance with medical needs, mental health, legal needs, education, job training and basic living skills like communication, conflict resolution, and help understanding boundaries, trafficking and trauma. We are a place where women who have been trafficking can regain their voice, dignity and security.


Current Project: Yard Tools

Lila Mae's House needs new yard tools to help with lawn care.  These tools will be very helpful for taking care of our property.

    Project Details

    Lila Mae's House needs your help! We are the only residential resource for sex trafficking survivors in Northwest Iowa. Many people find it difficult to believe sex trafficking happens in our area. The truth is dozens of women need help, and many more go unreported - right here in Siouxland! Lila Mae's House gives survivors in Siouxland a place of healing where they need it most, rather than forcing them to travel across the state (or farther) to get the assistance they need. We have space to accommodate 7 women. Our highly-trained staff are sensitive to the trauma survivors have experienced and are prepared to create a safe and healing environment. Lila Mae's House needs financial support to offer high-quality care for survivors including: access to high-quality medical, mental health and psychiatric care, trauma therapy, legal representation, financial management education, job training, cooking classes, and more.
