7th Well

We believe every young lady is beautiful, unique, strong, and worthy of chance at a healthy life – and sex trafficking of minors in Tennessee is taking away that chance. With thousands of cases of sex trafficking reported by the TBI (Tennessee Bureau of Investigation) each year, it’s critical to provide victims a place for treatment, holistic care and healing. Victims suffer severe psychological, emotional and physical trauma and need professional care and treatment, otherwise they are 85 percent more likely to return to the life they’ve grown accustom to. 7th Well exists to break that cycle. Focused on aftercare for minors, we will provide immediate care for victims as well as holistic care for 4-6 program participants per year. The program will include spiritual, medical, emotional and physical therapy, all happening in the context of a small, family-sized unite, which will prepare and equip the girls to lead productive, fulfilling lives.
