Mission, Vision & Core Programs

The Grateful Garment Project’s (TGGP) mission is to ensure that every victim of a sexual crime who crosses the threshold of a Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) facility or who seeks medical attention and/or law enforcement involvement is provided with whatever new clothing, toiletries, snacks, and other miscellaneous items that they may require. We have further expanded our mission and vision to encompass all victims of sexual violence. This includes, but is not limited to Commercially Sexually Exploited Children (CSEC) and victims of Human Sexual Trafficking (HST).

 

Our scope is wide but our purpose is narrow: The Vision of TGGP is that no victim of sexual violence in our communities should ever experience further suffering due to a lack of clothing to wear home after he or she receives services from a Sexual Violence Service Provider.

 

The Grateful Garment Project’s Core Values are as follows:

Integrity

 

Acting with moral soundness as good

stewards of the resources trusted to us.

Service

 

Humbly provide the highest level and

be of the greatest use to our clients.

 

Dedication

 

Strive to continually provide to the

needs of our clients and beyond.

Dignity

 

With absolute resolve we maintain

dignity is essential to all human life.
