Our Work

Streets Hope + the Lion Project

Our mission is to provide holistic restorative services to women escaping sex trafficking and the commercial sex industry and nurture the resilience needed to heal, transform and thrive. Women in the sex trade are one of society’s most stigmatized and vulnerable populations. Most women we serve at Street’s Hope entered the sex trade as children and they experience a wide range of co-occuring stressors including: trauma, mental health issues, addiction, and homelessness. Street’s Hope restores their dignity by encouraging each woman to become balanced (physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually), to be self-supporting apart from the sex industry, and to be an active part of a healthy community. We do this work to realize our vision of a healthy community void of sex trafficking and the commercial sex industry, where every woman is empowered and restored to her humanity.
