The first annual Haven for Hope Gala was a tremendous success due to the
dedication of the many volunteers and the generosity of our supportive community. Beth Ritchie, Haven for Hope founder, and Becky Martin, Board President, both spoke about the great need for a restorative home that will meet the needs of women who have been rescued from trafficking to rebuild their lives, with the emphasis of healing the body, mind and spirit.
Jessa Dillow Crisp was the featured speaker who was formerly sex trafficked and is now restored and is an advocate for those needing the same kind of help and healing.
$15,000 was raised toward a future sanctuary home in Chaffee County for the
restoration of trafficked survivors.

The elegant Mount Princeton Hot Springs Pavilion was the ideal venue for our first annual Haven for Hope Gala.
Jessa Dillow Crisp gave an inspirational and emotional description of her past trafficked life and her escape from it with the help of caring women and a sanctuary home similar to Haven for Hope.
The generous donations from our community brought in $15,000 that will go directly toward the new sanctuary home for previously trafficked women.
