thank you

Our first-ever Zeteo Community Benefit—a huge success!

Images and highlights of the February 23rd event.

The sexual exploitation of women is happening in your own backyard…

but now, so are hope and restoration, thanks to the grace of God!

who we serve

We serve women who are or have been sexually exploited, no matter where they are on their journey. We work with women who have children as well as those who don’t. We come alongside women of all cultural, ethnic, and religious backgrounds.

our mission

To serve women who have been sexually exploited by providing residential programming and a supportive community in which they are free to dream and thrive.

our vision

A world where every survivor of sexual exploitation has a safe place to find healing and hope.

The state of Wisconsin scored an “F” among the Shared Hope International “State Report Cards on Child and Youth Sex Trafficking”.  Our state’s “Responses to and Identification of Sex Trafficking Victims” scored an alarming 9.5 out of 27.5, as well as only a 3 out of 15 on our “Continuum of Care” resources.

“I remember sitting in my car alone one day on the west side of Madison calling different places asking for help out of my situation [sex trafficking], but no one could help me because I wasn’t a drug addict…Had there been somewhere for me to go, I wholeheartedly believe my life could have changed for the positive much sooner.”

building hope

In addition to housing, Zeteo Community will provide high-quality programming that will be tailored to serve and empower women that have been sexually exploited in their journey towards healing. We will provide strengths-based, trauma-informed, holistic care through a variety of therapies as well as life skills and job training through on-site classes and workshops.

building homes

We want to meet a very practical need for women leaving a life of sexual exploitation: housing. Our goal is to build a group of multi-family homes that can comfortably house women and their children if they have them. The idea is that these homes would be more than a “shelter”, but a safe and peaceful place to start a new life.

building community

Community has always been the lifeblood of what we do. We are all about people and the way God brings us together to share life with each other. We don’t want to just build homes, but we want to build a community to invite women into: a place of acceptance and love that can transform and bring healing to even the deepest wounds.

“In almost every case under investigation or pending before a court, the victims lack stable housing.”
