Magdalene Omaha is part of a national network of sister organizations to Magdalene Nashville/Thistle Farms, where this model was founded by Becca Stevens in 1997. Thistle Farms is now the largest survivor-run small business in the United States, and their model has spread to over 40 communities across the country. In over twenty years of operations in Nashville, they have found that every woman who enters their program has a story that begins with a rape – the average age of the first assault is between 7-11. The average age these women began living on the streets is between 14-16. Many of them have spent decades battling through repeated rapes, violence, other trauma, and drug addiction.
