An evening with the Rev. Becca Stevens
St. John’s Church Larchmont invites you for an evening with the Rev. Becca Stevens -- author, speaker, priest, social entrepreneur, founder, and president of Thistle Farms.
Saturday, October 3, 2020 7:30pm via Zoom.
About the Rev. Becca Stevens and Thistle Farms:
After experiencing the death of her father and subsequent child abuse when she was 5, Becca Stevens longed to open a sanctuary for survivors offering a loving community.
In 1997, Becca opened the first home as a sanctuary for 5 women survivors. Four years later, the women were making great strides in recovery, but struggling to become financially self-sufficient due to employment barriers. To address this, Becca, volunteers, and residents began making candles in a church basement and, in 2001, Thistle Farms' social enterprises were born.
The work of love is to keep lighting the way for millions of women
still searching for a way out.
For over 20 years, Thistle Farms has lit a pathway of healing and hope
for women survivors of trafficking, prostitution, and addiction.
