Latisha’s House Foundation is a nonprofit founded in March of 2013, after Elizabeth Ameling, our Executive Director and Founder encountered a young women on the streets of Chicago, IL.The young women was 25 years old, HIV positive, had been raped and had been on the street since she was 12 years old. She had no identification, address, education or social security card. She and other ladies were forced to perform sexual acts in exchange for money and beaten or in danger of losing their lives if they did not. She had to depend on her trafficker for sustenance needs such as clothing, food or shelter.Latisha described a life that was filled with fear, the threat of assaults, being hungry and forced to live a life that she did not want but did not know how to escape. Elizabeth and her team rescued Latisha and took her to a safe house where she was able to begin a successful new life. The idea for Latisha’s House began in Chicago and would become a reality in the Greater Hampton Roads area in 2013.
