WE DON'T ASK
WHAT DID YOU DO?
Most of the women we serve first experienced sexual abuse between ages 7-11, began using alcohol or drugs by age 13, and first hit the streets between the ages of 14 -16.
We believe that love is more powerful than all the forces that drive women to the street, and a strong community will help them not only heal, but thrive.
