As part of a week-long training and staff enrichment, Operation New Hope’s team took a day off from providing reentry services to lend a helping hand to a partner nonprofit that is in the process of moving to their new program location. Our staff worked together to help Rethreaded move from their former facility to their beautiful new Campus of Hope located at 515 E. Ninth Street in the historic Springfield neighborhood. Our hardworking group loaded three truckloads of boxes and supplies from their storage facility and then unloaded and sorted the materials at their new and much more spacious warehouse contained within their 30,000+ square foot facility.
Rethreaded’s new Campus of Hope was built in 1949 and was originally a train depot. We love the old charm contained in the windows, walls, and floors and join with Rethreaded in seeing the great potential of the space. We couldn’t be more excited for their team and all the new clients they will be able to serve at this new location.
Rethreaded’s team shared with us that they are looking forward to serving more women who need help, and that they are excited to have the much needed space for increased production capacity, training, support services, and events. This building will quadruple their capacity to hire survivors and expand their business model. They are looking forward to being neighbors with both Springfield and East Side residents and businesses.
Rethreaded’s mission is to renew hope, reignite dreams and release potential for survivors of human trafficking locally and globally through business. They provide a second chance at life through employment for survivors of human trafficking in Jacksonville, Florida. Women have employment opportunities in different facets of the company including production, inventory, sales, marketing and finance/admin. Rethreaded also operates as a distribution company that sells products from like-minded businesses who also employ women who have found freedom from the sex trade.
Team Operation New Hope is so thankful for the opportunity to share hope with our good friends Rethreaded at their new Campus of Hope.
