Call to Freedom - "If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also." John 14:3

Marissa’s Project

The story began in August of 2015 when Becky Rasmussen traveled into the heart of the Sturgis Bike rally in South Dakota. At the rally, she had an encounter with a young teenage girl named Marissa.  This encounter set the wheels in motion for Call to Freedom to become its own 501(c)3 nonprofit and for the implementation of Marrisa's Project

Marissa's Project is an 8 unit apartment complex, which is a transitional housing program, serving adult women victimized by sex trafficking. We have found, through both research and our work that creating a safe environment where individuals can be supported and find stability is necessary for successful long term transitions out of a human trafficking situation. Not only are women offered shelter but are also provided access to occupational therapy, counseling, transportation, advocacy, chemical dependency groups and other supportive services. Our ultimate goal is to see these women transition into productive and self-sufficient members of our community.
