Meet the Franciscan Peacemakers

Since 1995, Franciscan Peacemakers has ministered on the streets of Milwaukee to women engaging in prostitution because of trauma, human sex trafficking, or drug addiction. Their longevity comes from the trusting relationships they build with the women they serve. Besides hospitality and outreach, they also offer a housing and recovery program and an initiative in which survivors make and sell bath and body products for a living wage. 

Cedar House proudly supports Franciscan Peacemakers by offering a wide variety of their premium, luxuriously scented soaps and bath bombs. The soaps are all-natural, handcrafted, and fragrant with the gentle warmth of essential oils, while the bath bombs create a truly spa-like experience. You can pamper yourself while channeling the Franciscan charism of “peace and all good” to some of those who need it most.

Franciscan Peacemakers weaves community education and advocacy into everything they do, and they believe that the work to end human trafficking starts by standing with and for survivors, reminding them and the world of their inherent dignity. Learn more about their incredible mission here!
