Our Mission

Our mission is to offer women who are trapped in a cycle of sexual exploitation and addiction a path to freedom, a haven for healing, and the opportunity to flourish, leading to generational change and the betterment of our Greenville community.

Our Vision

Our vision is a compassionate and unified community free from prostitution, sex trafficking and addiction that values and strengthens women, empowering them to reach their God-given potential.

Our History

Jasmine Road is modeled after the very successful Thistle Farms non-profit which was founded in Nashville, Tennessee by Episcopal priest Becca Stevens more than 20 years ago. The Greenville affiliate was incorporated in 2016 as a result of a partnership between Christ Church Episcopal, Triune Mercy Center and Bon Secours, St. Francis Health System. When Jasmine Road’s first safe house opened its doors in May 2018, it joined more than 40 Thistle Farms sister agencies around the country in offering a transformative two-year residential program with an innovative social enterprise component, the first of its kind in Greenville.

Love

We are rooted in this simple word, and it all starts with home: a safe, stable, and peaceful place to rest and heal. We embrace the concept “love heals” by surrounding each woman with a community based on unconditional love.

Heal

Through community partnerships, we work together to address the healing needs of each woman from an evidence- based holistic perspective.


Bloom

We empower each woman to blossom and thrive by providing sustainable employment, personal and educational development opportunities, stable housing, and long-term support after graduation.

Our Social Enterprises

Jasmine Road offers stable and sustainable employment opportunities for residents that also maximize positive social impact in the Greenville community, while generating funding for non-profit operations.

The Jasmine Road social enterprise program provides residents with a meaningful career experience working in one of our businesses, including Jasmine Kitchen. We support and empower residents to learn skills such as customer service, management, marketing, teamwork, and accountability, through creating and branding unique products.


Candles

Each day at Jasmine Road starts with the lighting of a candle for a meditation and prayer circle. In this sacred space of infinite giving and receiving, the Jasmine Road community shares stories of healing and growth. We light the candle for ourselves and for one another because we are all worthy of love and belonging, as well as for those who haven’t found their way home yet.


Jewelry

Creativity is an incredible tool for healing and growth. Each piece of jewelry is handcrafted by survivors with semiprecious stones with healing properties. Our bracelets are also perfect for layering and gift giving. You can add a few drops of essential oil to your lava stones to get the many benefits that support physical, spiritual, and mental wellbeing.


Restaurant

The capstone of our social enterprise is Jasmine Kitchen, a lunch café providing job training, employment, and career building opportunities to survivors of sexual exploitation and addiction --- the first-of-its-kind in Greenville. Jasmine Kitchen seeks to remove barriers to employment for survivors, and is a nurturing and safe gathering place for our entire community to share healthy meals together and be a part of something bigger than ourselves.
