Thistle and Bee offers a two-year residential program designed to address the needs of women desiring to exit sex trafficking, prostitution, and addiction. Women live in a home setting where they have daily opportunities to practice community living as they heal from histories of physical, emotional, and sexual trauma.
The work of staff and volunteers is guided by the conviction that every women who comes to Thistle & Bee is inherently worthy of love and respect. We believe in the transformative power of love and strive to create a community marked by unwavering support and mutual accountability.
As women helping women, we will make the admission process as simple as possible. The first step is to call 901.338.8299.
We understand that reaching out takes courage. You will be asked to answer a series of questions which will help us determine whether you are a good fit for our program. If you are, we will schedule a face-to-face intake interview with you.
