Name Change: Doma International vs. Freedom a la Cart 

Over ten years ago, Doma International began a collaborative partnership with Franklin County Municipal Court’s CATCH Court specialized docket. Whereas CATCH was providing an intensive probationary program to help victims of sex trafficking, Doma established a comprehensive community-based support program to foster healing and restoration to CATCH participants. Furthermore, to help overcome barriers to employment, in 2011 Doma purchased a food cart and launched Freedom a la Cart as a social enterprise providing survivors with equitable opportunities for employment. Freedom became the vehicle – literally – through which survivors began the ever-important first steps toward self-sufficiency.

Today, we are so much more! What was once a single food cart is now a bustling café + catering company, grown from the hearts and hard work of the women who sustain us. Because the community was most familiar with us as Freedom a la Cart, in 2019 the organization’s name was legally changed from Doma International to Freedom a la Cart.
