My name is Jane Guerino. I am the founder/executive director of Glory House, Transitional Home.
I have been incarcerated 14 times in three different states. My addiction lasted 34 years. I was abducted and was human trafficked for two years.
During this time I was tortured and beaten daily and sold four times. After two years I escaped, but this really had an impact on my life. I do not come before you today as someone who is completely healed, I am still in trafficking therapy, but now I know what it is like to have a life of freedom, joy, happiness and inner healing. Because of my willingness and my strength from God, I worked very hard to achieve this life, but now I can honestly say, from the bottom of my heart, I am no longer a victim, I am a survivor.
When I left state prison, there were two things. I was focused on: God and making a difference in the world. I have been helping women & men who are like I was for many years now. This program has helped me just as much as it has helped them. I truly love these women & men from the bottom of my heart, which is something a lot of them have not experienced much in their lives.
At Glory House we do hugs, second chances, encouragement and love. We will furnish their home and provide all bed linens and kitchen needs. This program is designed to be a reentry program and if the women & men utilize this opportunity, they will be reentering the community as productive women & men.Glory House has been open since Dec. 6 2014. I chose to be self-supporting.
If you have any volunteer opportunities or questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at +1 (484) 523-0465.
I would like to introduce to Robin Gaber, our house manager.
