Human trafficking and violence against women and children affect many individuals and families all over the world, and the victims of these serious crimes usually face a lot of struggles when it comes to healing from them. As a way to support these types of victims, businesswoman she founded the Sharon Prince Grace Farms Foundation in 2009 to provide therapeutic options that involve connecting them with the beauty of nature and the arts, and giving them a community-based experience that is focused on encouraging religious faith.

The facility sits on 80 acres of land, and it gives its occupants a beautiful scenic view of nature, which the owner thinks will make them want to walk around the property so they can fully enjoy the peaceful environment. A church was also built on the grounds for those who want to practice their faith. The facility costed $120 million to construct, and it is considered to be one of the best places for victims of crimes against humanity to go for healing and inner peace.
