Out of Darkness
Out of Darkness Columbus is an anti-trafficking outreach and rescue organization, providing immediate short-term crisis stabilization and hope through God, to transition exploited adult women into long-term programs.
Our mission is to reach, rescue and restore all victims of commercial sexual exploitation that the glory of God may be known.
Our vision is that every life would be restored and free.
WHAT WE DO
Out of Darkness’ Princess Night outreach is working to break the cycle of sex trafficking one woman at a time. Every Friday night Princess Night volunteers share a message of God’s love, hope, and restoration with these misused and hard-to-reach women by handing out roses and handwritten cards of encouragement and scripture.
Out of Darkness Opened a house in an area of Columbus where street prostitution occurs to provide lunch, offer clothes and toiletries, and facilitate activities centered around hope, trust and love. Women forced into sexual exploitation by the physical and mental manipulation by others or for addiction or survival can have a place to drop in and learn to trust and dream again.
Once an exploited woman risks leaving the life and calls the 24/7 hotline, a rescue team will pick her up and take her to our safe house. Out of Darkness Columbus provides an immediate, short term safe refuge that's fully staffed and trauma informed, with the goal of placement into a partnering long term program. We are currently in the final stages of renovations and program preparation.
