Situation

Women become vulnerable to street prostitution when they have nowhere else to go other than to fall into exploitative relationships with the people who control street prostitutionm many of whom are also drug dealers.Women are almost always bullied into it in return for some basic care such as food or a roof over their head. It is a desperate choice which women make when they have no family or firnds or home and are extremely lonely. Women without family or friends are at their most vulnerable on their release from prison and we would like to work with these women at that point in their lives. We hope that by giving them someone to talk to and to support them at that time, we will be able to help woment to discover that they do have a choice and that they can get the help needed to support themselves with dignity without being subjected to the violence and exploitation of street prostitution.
