We Fight Monsters

Operation: #BuyBackTheBlock


We’re doing something different and new. We need your help. Instead of just housing addicted vets or trafficked women in recovery, we're about to start buying up trap houses (houses where drugs are sold and women are trafficked at scale) as we’re able to get them shut down, then renovate them and use them to house single vet moms in partnership with veteran’s court or single mom trafficking survivors through our NGO partnerships.

We have a very unique mix of folks who will be able to provide security to these houses, who come from the streets/neighborhoods they’re in and have both an understanding of and influence among the various elements still running them.

This, to my knowledge, has never been done before, but we’re going to do it.

We are going to #BuyBackTheBlock!

By removing real estate inventory from the narcotics and sex trafficking “industry”, there will be an absolutely measurable and immediate impact on the streets where we do it.

If you’re interested in helping us financially, with materials, or with labor, please let us know. We are starting in Memphis on the same dope tracks we escaped.

We owe it to that community for being part of the problem for so long.

We want to get moving on these two properties ASAP before the next dope boy moves into one of them and we have an extra hurdle to overcome.

We have been offered each of the first two houses for $25,000 a piece, which is well under their $40-45k appraisals, and will need considerable renovation to be habitable.  Every dime raised makes a big dent!

$600 provides a roof over one woman’s head for one month.

$300 feeds one for a month.

$850 covers out of pocket for medical detox

$150 covers a day of field outreach for roughly a dozen women

We Are The Dead

We are the Dead is a sister organization to Flanders Fields, to carry their mission to those encountered on the streets, on the dope track, in the prisons and in the hell of addiction or sex trafficking who aren't veterans. Nobody on the Flanders team will step over the dead bodies of civilians to save a vet, but within the confines of the charter, funding can only be allocated to veterans. The need to stand up a second org focused on non-veteran funding for rescues and recoveries was immediately apparent, and to date, the Flanders team has been funding these efforts out of their own pockets, but no more! We are the Dead gets it's name from the same poem by LtCol John McCrae that Flanders Fields got it's name from, which reads in part: "

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields."

We are here to restore life to those who were once dead to their addictions and the streets, for we were once the dead ourselves.
