During our street outreach, we go to areas of Columbus known for street prostitution to give women roses and handwritten cards of encouragement with our hotline number, showing them their value through the eyes of Christ.
Our drop-in center is located near one of our outreach areas and is open multiple days per week. Women can stop by to receive resources of food and clothing, connect to needed services, and participate in activities designed to strengthen and encourage.
Our Strip Club outreach delivers gifts to women in clubs around Columbus. By visiting the clubs, we build relationships and offer support while showing them the love of Christ.
Jail Pen Pal
Our Jail Pen Pal program connects women in jail with an Out of Darkness Pen Pal. Through written letters, we provide support, comfort, and relationship, encouraging women to call our hotline for ongoing services upon release.
Once a call comes to our hotline and a rescue team is requested, we coordinate to pick the woman up and transport her to the safe home.
At our Safe Home, residents stay an average of 2-4 weeks while attending medical and psychiatric appointments, participating in group therapy and skills-building classes, and applying for long-term programs. The Safe Home is located at an undisclosed location and accepts emergency intakes around the clock.
Through our ambassador program we connect with the community, churches, businesses, friends & family to tell them about the realities of human trafficking and way they can join the fight.
Presented by medical professionals for interprofessional healthcare providers in medical/healthcare settings. Our team will train on how to identify, assess, and assist victims of sex trafficking. CEU's available.
