Formerly known as The Dancer Transition Fund, the Dixie Fund enables us to assist dancers who desire to transition out of the sex industry.
We have found that many with high hopes leave the stage only to return weeks later due to the need for fast cash to pay bills and feed babies. Our hope is with The Dixie Fund, we can help alleviate some of these financial burdens in order to facilitate an ex-dancer with job placement and/or education assistance.
With a very thorough and rigorous process in place, money from The Dixie Fund is never given directly to an individual. And part of the process for an ex-dancer is working with our team on both a life and financial plan. Part of the financial plan is encouraging the ex-dancer to “pay back” the funds used to assist them. While this is not a loan, we want to encourage them that as they straighten out their lives, they have the chance to help others who will come behind them.
The Dixie Fund is named after our great friend, Dixie January, who was tragically killed in an auto accident on November 11, 2011. We met Dixie eight years prior and walked a redemptive journey with her all the way to her final resting place. Prior to her death, she had met Jesus and begun to turn her life around. She had left the dancing lifestyle and was truly changing the road for she and her three children.
We are better people today because we knew Dixie January. And our prayer is that she will help future ex-dancers looking to make the transformations she did. Dixie had an infectious smile and spirit. Our goal with The Dixie Fund is to help bring that same infectious smile and spirit of hope to someone ready to change.
