Magdalene House of Austin
Program Capacity Expansion
Magdalene House of Austin (MHA) is a cost-free, survivor-led therapeutic community providing food, shelter, group and individual therapy, education and vocational training, employment assistance, and other services for up to two years for adult women survivors of sex trafficking. As the only long-term survivor-led residential program available in Central Texas for adult survivors of sex trafficking, MHA’s mission is to prevent women who have been trafficked from ever being exploited or sold again.
With the Impact Austin grant, MHA will double the capacity of the program, increase staffing by 50% with an additional licensed social worker, and purchase and use evidence-based, trauma-informed materials specific to helping heal trafficking trauma.
