The term “Safe Home” refers to the now famous network of safe house locations that were used to assist slaves escaping to the northern free states in the 19th Century United States. Safe Homes were an integral part of the Underground Railroad, and many were located in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. It is only fitting that this county, which helped slaves escape to freedom for so many years, should again provide that same service for modern-day victims of slavery. Together with Northstarinitiative.org, Sims Architects has worked to design a shelter for victims of trafficking. It will be a safe, restorative home for America’s domestically trafficked victims.
For security reasons the exact location of the house will not be published. Only preliminary drawings are posted on our website. Final drawings and renderings will remain private. This project was done as an Agape Architecture project – providing discount design services to non-profit Christian Organizations.
