"I remember coming into the program and realizing that for years, the candle was lit for me. Knowing that people loved me and were fighting for me long before I ever knew was humbling and I am forever grateful. Making our candles is the most important thing I do. Healing, hope, and unconditional love go into each one."
500 Lights Home
A Note From Jon
As we enter this season of joy, life, and light, I am excited to once again partner with Thistle Farms to help women victims of trafficking, prostitution, and addiction find healing, hope, and freedom.
This is the 5th year of this partnership! Each year, we exceeded our goal of selling 500 candles within days of announcing the campaign.
I'm excited to do it again this year!

Five hundred candles is not just a lot. It's everything.
The value will cover the cost of 220 nights of sanctuary, healing, and the road to thriving.
