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 in one of our outreach areas and is open multiple days per week. Women can stop by to receive needed resources of food and clothing, connection to services and can participate in activities designed to strengthen and enourge.
Our Strip Club outreach takes gifts to ladies in clubs around Columbus. By visiting the clubs we are able to build relationships and offer support while showing them the love of Christ.
Our Jail Pen-Pal program connects women in jail with an Out of Darkness Pen-Pal. Through written letters we are able to provide support, comfort, and relationship and encourage 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 on average for 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 in 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.
