Peace + All Good


Franciscan Peacemakers provides a pathway

to sustainable, healthy, safe, and productive lives for women engaging in prostitution due to sexual exploitation, trauma, human sex trafficking and addiction.

The service approach of Franciscan Peacemakers includes street outreach, a two-year residential program, meaningful employment, and advocacy work.

Connect: Outreach

Hospitality and outreach to women engaging in street prostitution to begin building relationships of trust. The Franciscan Peacemakers visit neighborhoods where prostitution is actively occurring, bringing bag lunches, hygiene products, warm clothes and empathetic presence to women.

The Franciscan Peacemakers Hospitality Center provides respite and peer support for women on Lisbon Avenue.


House: Safety, Support + Healing

Clare Community is a two year program that provides housing for women who are on their journey of recovery from sexual exploitation and substance addiction. Women who live in Clare Community are laying a solid foundation for life-long recovery, which they begin through an outpatient treatment program. The residents have time in these two years to gain employment experience as well as to engage in healing various aspects of their lives: trauma care, physical, emotional and mental health, legal financial, and relational healing.
