OUTREACH

Princess Night

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. 

Drop-In Center

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.

Encounter

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.

EMERGENCY HOUSING

Hotline

The Out of Darkness rescue hotline is the bridge between outreach and emergency housing. We are available to receive calls 24 hours a day. 

Rescue Team

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.
