🌸 Lotus Foundation Blooms Hope for Human Trafficking Survivors

Lotus Foundation

A new nonprofit is blossoming in Colorado Springs, bringing hope to survivors of human trafficking. Lotus Foundation opened in 2023 with a mission to provide confidential victim advocacy and case management to those recovering from sex and labor trafficking.

Founded by two passionate advocates, Lotus Foundation envisions a community where every survivor has access to the resources they need to heal, no matter how big or small. Their ultimate goal is to see each person living a safe, healthy, and independent life.

They welcome survivors of all backgrounds and promise to hear, believe, and support them. Their trained confidential advocates uphold strict privacy, except in cases of child abuse/neglect.

Though just starting out, their hope is to expand by adding housing programs. They seek partners to collaborate on ending trafficking locally.

To achieve their goals, they need community support and contributions. You can help by donating and contacting them for volunteer needs they may not have listed on their website yet.

This nonprofit believes it takes a village to solve this crisis. Their inclusive, compassionate approach plants the seeds of hope in survivors. With our community's support, they can grow into a flowering sanctuary for many more people seeking to break free.

Contact Lotus Foundation at 719-243-0759, email at [email protected] or visit their website to learn more about their critical work empowering survivors. New location added at 5333 N. Union Blvd. Please call before you visit to drop off donations or talk to an advocate, so they can make sure there is someone available to greet you!
