Becky Dymond calls it a safe place where women seeking to escape “the life” can go for a fresh start and the skills to succeed at it.
That “life” is one where women are enslaved in human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation. In November, Dymond opened a safe house in Palm Beach County to help women trying to escape such circumstances.
“The biggest issue for gals coming out of ‘the life’ is they don’t have a place to live. They don’t have any income,” said Dymond, the founder of the Hepzibah House, a faith-based residential treatment program for women who have been freed from human trafficking.
