Her Future Coalition partners with local agencies in Asia to build, expand and maintain shelters for rescued girls. This is the first and crucial step in a survivor's journey to recovery and freedom.
In 2014 we partnered with Women's Interlink Foundation to construct a 15,000 square foot shelter in Jalpaiguri, West Bengal, India. In 2016, we raised money to add a third floor to the shelter. It will now be able to serve up to 125 survivors, 365 days a year.
In addition to the Jalpaiguri shelter, Her Future Coalition has expanded shelters in Calcutta and Mumbai, India, providing more space for girls to live, play, study, and learn a trade. We provide ongoing support for survivors at our partner shelters to pay for food, clothing and school supplies.

Despite their tragic backgrounds, the girls are thriving at the shelter home. The younger kids are all in school, or if rescued very recently, are receiving remedial education and counseling to prepare them for school. We have recently added a third floor to the shelter, so we can offer more dormitory space as well as vocational training for the older girls.
