Peoria Home is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting women survivors of sex trafficking and prostitution. Our vision is for women to grow individually, reclaiming their freedom while living in community. Located in Everett, WA, Peoria Home supports women in Snohomish County and across the US.
Making Our Mission Work
As a privately funded 501(c)3 charity, we rely completely on donor support to help us provide a home, supplies, education and medical care for each resident in our program. Over 75% of every dollar donated goes to the Peoria Home program.
