Starfish Project is a non-profit with a social enterprise that cares for women and girls escaping human trafficking and exploitation. Established in 2006, Starfish Project has been actively engaging exploited women and girls, first through outreach and then by inviting them into the Starfish community. Once a part of Starfish, women participate in their Holistic Care Program and work in their social enterprise jewelry business.
At Starfish Project, they help exploited women and girls experience freedom, establish independence and develop careers and our vision is to see every woman valued. From the beginning, they have had the mission of helping women escape a life of exploitation by training them to develop meaningful and healthy careers making jewelry, doing administration, photography, accounting and graphic design. They make and sell their products solely so that they can continue to provide a safe, healthy and honoring livelihood for all of the women who they currently employ, while also seeking to reach greater numbers of women and expand to other locations.
