Rethreaded loves people affected by the sex trade by fostering relationship and life-giving community. Our vision is to unravel the effects of the sex trade by fighting business with business on a global and local level.
Local Impact: Sewing a New Story
Rethreaded provides a four-month holistic training program for women in the Jacksonville, Florida area who are coming out of lives of addiction, violence, human trafficking, and prostitution. Many of these women leave prison with felony records, creating significant challenges to employment. Rethreaded is a safe place where women are paid a living wage to become artisan seamstresses and “upcycle” donated t-shirts into new creations for sale. See their products here.
Global Impact: Supporting Freedom Businesses
Rethreaded also operates as a distribution company that sells products made by women from all over the world who have found freedom from the sex trade. We sell these products at our warehouse, local events, seasonal home parties, and online. Read about our freedom business partners here.
As a faith-based organization to accomplish our mission to love people affected by the sex trade, we at Rethreaded believe:
- LOVE: Love is the transforming agent of
Rethreaded. We seek to love others unconditionally, healthfully, and in a way
that speaks to the source of our Love.
We believe that God is the purest source of Love and seek to love others like God has loved us. The greatest model of love is shown through the grace, mercy, and compassion of Jesus. We will humbly try to follow His perfect example of what perfect love tangibly looks like in a very messy world. We trust that love can guide our business and help us overcome anything that comes our way.
“If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,but do not have love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13 :1-13
- ACCEPTANCE: All men, women, and children
have the possibility to be redeemed, healed and freed from the effects of the
We believe that both the oppressed and the oppressor can be given a chance to “Sew a new Story”. Whoever walks through the doors of Rethreaded, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, sex, or past will be welcome into the community of Rethreaded. We do recognize that there will be instances where boundaries must be put in place but those will be for the safety of our employees.
Acceptance comes from knowing someone’s story. By knowing each other we are more free to love and enter into each other live in a healthy non-judgmental way.
“Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye. “Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.” Mathew 7: 1-7
- HEALING: Rethreaded seeks to be safe place for
emotional, spiritual and physical healing for all that come in contact with
As an organization we will facilitate healing through our work environment, relationships, and community. But we also recognize that as humans we are limited in what we can offer one another. Rethreaded believes that we need God in order to fully heal our hearts. We believe that Jesus has the ability to heal the deepest and darkest wound in our hearts through the Holy Spirit. We trust in the mysterious and often hidden work of Love.
- RELATIONSHIP: We value the power and
impact of relationship in all areas of Rethreaded.
We trust that whoever comes in contact with Rethreaded can be transformed with the relationships formed within our organization.
- COMMUNITY: In a world that is filled
with individualism we seek to offer a radical alternative in which people can
experience what it truly means to be a part of a community.
This is where our mission becomes real. Our commitment to each other will keep us knitted together when our relationship and community is at stake. We will come together in hard times, celebrate the successes, and press each other to become more of who we were created to be.
This sense of community that will be developed within Rethreaded’s own walls can then be taken and used to transform, our city, and our world.
- Excellence: Rethreaded will seek to to
employ “best practices” into all area of our organization.
We will implement within our community the structures and processes that are based on past research and results in order to build our own model for what is possible within the realm of rehabilitation and business.
