Even MORE to 'Purchase with a PURPOSE'!

Have we mentioned how much we LOVE Individual Fundraising?!? 💕

Volunteers using their skills to create FUN & unique artisan jewelry are currently offering it for sale at The Top Drawer Consignment Shop! 100% of profits will be used by Sparrow Place toward the purchase or re-purposing of a donated house for survivors of domestic sex trafficking.

It is also our HOPE to offer future SP residents the choice of creating jewelry as a way to support themselves as they walk their paths to personal freedom.

We appreciate the initiative! If you want to host a personal fundraiser, let us know and we will do all we can to help!

"Welcome...

Ashley Broberg!"

Sparrow Place just accepted our first intern and we are thrilled to have her along on our journey.

Ashley is currently a Junior in college with a dual major in Social Work and Biblical Studies. She first started having a passion to see human trafficking brought to an end as a senior in high school four years ago. Her goal is to forward our awareness efforts through the use of photography, video, social media, and a possible teen speaking engagement. Keep an eye out for her work!

Since we believe in the empowerment of all girls and women, we’ll let Ashley speak for herself, “It is my goal and dream to work with survivors one on one and see them spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically restored through the grace, love, and power of Jesus Christ.”

Join in our support as we wish Ashley a warm welcome. We are going to keep her busy!
