Generation WORKS: Rethreaded
As we prepare for Generation WORKS on February 4, 2017, we will be featuring some of the agencies and projects we will be working with to transform the city of Jacksonville and the lives of the people who are part of our neighborhoods and communities.
Rethreaded’s mission is to unravel the effects of the sex trade by fighting business with business on a global and local level. They provide safe, viable and dignity-giving work to survivors of the sex trade allowing them to be who they were created to be.
Rethreaded started with a simple idea, and a strong passion from it’s founder Kristin Keen. Beginning by forming relationships with women on the street and making prison visits, she knew the biggest need was for a safe, supportive work environment where these women could earn money while learning a skill and experiencing continued healing through community. Working in partnership with the City Rescue Mission, Rethreaded hired its first full-time employee in November 2012. To date, Rethreaded has impacted the lives of 24 survivors in Jacksonville through direct employment and has helped sustain the freedom of over 2,200 women internationally.

During Generation WORKS we will be cleaning/remodeling the Rethreaded warehouse as well as creating decorations for an upcoming fundraiser.
