Magdalene’s is building strategic alliances to ensure quality care for survivors and efficient use of community resources.
To ensure the highest quality of services for our survivors, Magdalene's is engaging local, well respected organizations that are already providing Intensive Outpatient Programs, legal advocacy, medical, dental and vision care and trauma-informed therapists.
Magdalene’s, Inc., is a member of the Thistle National Network.
Thistle Farms, founded in 1997, provides long-term residential care to survivors of trafficking, prostitution and addiction. Its homes operate on a holistic model with no authority living in the house. Each one represents a community built on trust and love. Five years after graduation, 75% of its graduates are living healthy, financially independent lives. Its Core Principles are built on survivor-led communities offering survivor-centered care and based on three foundations, Health, Employment and Housing.
The mission of the Thistle National Network is to drive systemic change by growing a survivor-led community that connects survivors of trafficking, prostitution, addiction and abuse to opportunities for healing and empowerment. An affiliate member is an organization that is working toward implementing Core Principles and meeting benchmarks set forth in their Survivor-Leader Pathway.
Magdalene's is a member of a local "Roundtable" of area providers.
When responding to disasters, nonprofit organizations ensure success in addressing emergency needs by implementing the 4 Cs: Communication, Cooperation, Coordination and Collaboration. Using that same strategy, Magdalene's has been a part of launching a local "Roundtable" of area providers of services to survivors of trafficking in our area. At the roundtable, we meet to coordinate services and have creative discussions about addressing gaps in and duplication of services. The Roundtable is hosted by Set Free Refuge and other members include The Secret Place, The Nissi Project, Called2Rescue, The Dream Center and others.
