OFF THE STREETS
BRINGING HOPE TO SURVIVORS OF SEX TRAFFICKING
Off the Streets is an award-winning, evidence-based program dedicated to serve the needs of women with histories of sex trafficking and exploitation. Our program utilizes a culturally-sensitive, trauma-informed model to help survivors of sex trafficking find safety, recovery, and empowerment.
OTS recognizes the significant trauma victims have experienced and guides them on a path to a healthy and productive lifestyle.
A collaborative effort with the police department, criminal justice system, local government, health care providers, substance abuse and mental health treatment providers, and more than 50 nonprofit agencies, Off the Streets has served over 800 victims of sex trafficking since it's inception in 2006.
The goal of the program is to provide a network of gender-specific services for women as they explore and practice positive changes in their lives and receive needed services. Off the Streets assists women who are involved in prostitution, sexual exploitation, and human trafficking move toward safety, recovery, empowerment, and community reintegration.
All of our case managers are degreed and credentialed chemical dependency counselors and share similar life experiences and backgrounds with our participants. This gives them the unique ability to empathize with our participants, gain their trust, and inspire them on the path to recovery.
