Marissa's Housing Project
Marissa’s Project is an 7 unit apartment complex, which is a supportive housing program, serving adult women victimized by human 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 trafficking situation. Not only are women offered shelter but are also provided access to other supportive services. Our ultimate goal is for clients to transition into productive and self-sufficient members of our community.
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 Marissa’s Project.
In 2020, Call to Freedom stepped out in faith to expand Marissa’s Support Housing Project. Learn more about this expansion project and how you can get involved.
