Summer for Survivors provides self-care boxes for survivors of sex trafficking and their children in Open Door Survivor Housing.
We often hear about the importance of self-care, but what exactly is it? Self-care is intentionally taking care of our mental, emotional, and physical health.

Building a self-care box is easy! Jaime Wheeler, Survivor Housing Director, has curated a list of items on Amazon.
Simply visit the list and select three to five items and have them delivered to Open Door at 1918 13th St., 79401. Jaime and her team will then deliver the boxes to survivors and their children. Thank you for helping us make this a Summer for Survivors! For more information, contact the development team at 806-687-6876.
