Jasmine Road is South Carolina’s first two-year residential program for adult women
survivors of human trafficking, prostitution, and addiction.
LoveWe 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.
HealThrough community partnerships, we work together to address the healing needs of each woman from an evidence- based holistic perspective.
BloomWe empower each woman to blossom and thrive by providing sustainable employment, personal and educational development opportunities, stable housing, and long-term support after graduation.
