HOW CAN I HELP?

HOW WE MAKE THE WORLD BETTER

Franciscan Peacemakers addresses the needs and issues of women in the Greater Milwaukee area who are seeking a way out of prostitution due to trauma, human sex trafficking or drug addiction. Our humble service is rooted in Franciscan Spirituality, incorporating a holistic healing approach emphasizing the human dignity of every person. We do this in 5 ways: (1) Outreach: Street Ministry, (2) Housing: Clare Community, (3) Social Enterprise: Gifts for the Journey, (4) Education: Speaking and Advocacy, and (5) in partnership with You: Critical Financial and Spiritual Support.

WHY WE DO IT

ONE WOMAN’S JOURNEY

By Kim Fannin with Mary Evangelista

I have grown so much in the last year, and learned a lot about myself. Like how I never realized how badly the feelings of abandonment, forms of abuse and loneliness from childhood had affected me. Until one day I found myself kneeling in the middle of my bed begging God to help me. That help came when I was invited to church. After all the years of self-abuse, and being used and abused by men, I felt worthless and was disgusted with myself. Now, I just wanted to be loved and accepted. I wanted a life free of drugs and free from the past. At the church, I found Jesus and thought that I would get the changes I wanted.
