Every woman should have a safe place to live, to be connected with a community of care and be loved unconditionally.
Our mission is to provide a sanctuary, a place of refuge, healing and restoration to women seeking a life free from trafficking, prostitution and addiction.
A woman’s experience of trauma impacts every area of functioning, including physical, mental, behavioral, and social. Whether addressing addiction, prostitution, or other issues, trauma-based solutions must be at the heart of all our practices.
Survivor-led practices ensure women can heal and recover at their own pace with the best possible care. Solutions created & implemented by other survivors are vital to ensuring that the programs we offer will truly meet the needs of our residents.
Our pilot home will offer 6-12 months of rent-free living with daily programs to promote healing & restoration. Healing Tides Cottage will be a home of grace and unconditional love.
Whether you have a skill or talent to share or want to make a monetary donation, we need your help!
Our home is secured, our partnership with Thistle Farms' programming model is solid, we are taking this leap of faith and welcoming four women into our home!

We have found a small piece of property in Duval county that we believe will serve our purposes for the next 5 to 10 years. Our vision is to open with a 3 bedroom home in 2021, with tiny homes on the back of the property in the months following (all based on zoning and city approval). Stay tuned for exciting updates in the near future.
Awakenings House does not intend to stray from their current focus on helping women recovering from substance abuse in a safe environment. This new project in partnership with Connections 2 Hope and Thistle Farms will add a new home, with a primary focus on trauma-based care alongside substance abuse.
At this time, our safe home will only be for women, as women make up the majority of victims of sex trafficking.
The minimum age to enter the home will be 18, as we are not a qualified foster care in the state of Florida.
Healing Tides was our pilot program with a goal to continue working on our larger vision of opening a full-scale tiny home village where hundreds of women may find the same services. Our 6-month goal is to open our first home and model the long-term practices that will be incorporated into our village.
Applicants will be interviewed for their readiness to begin the long process of healing and restoration. We will work with multiple agencies across NE Florida to identify women who are seeking a program that will offer them a respite from society so they can focus on their internal healing and then prepare for the education and skills to re-enter society.
