Our Mission

Through holistic care Scarlet Road offers the hope of freedom to those who have been sexually exploited.

 

We work to intervene and educate in order to prevent victimization, we provide solutions and resources to exit the industry safely, and we journey alongside survivors to find full healing from exploitation. We work to change mindsets around gender-based violence and we educate first responders and our community at large. Scarlet Road’s three co-founders came together in 2008 in response to an unmet need they witnessed locally-namely, those being exploited and abused by the legal and illegal sex industry had no support, resources, or voice, and the community had a general lack of understanding about the issue. Therefore, Scarlet Road set out to change social perspectives, help the community understand and serve victims of sexual exploitation, and provide long-term support for those that were receiving none.

Prevent 

We strongly believe in educating the community and better equipping our local partners to protect, identify and serve those who have been exploited. Scarlet Road uses national and state recommended training materials coupled with local knowledge, we offer comprehensive educational resources to help make our community better aware and safe. 

 

Reach

At Scarlet Road we know that leaving the life can seem more terrifying than staying in. Our survivor led outreach programs have been designed with those we serve in mind, knowing that it takes trust and time to see a way out. We reach out with an open hand and gentle invitation for the hope of change.  

 

Restore

Our comprehensive aftercare services include intensive case management, mentoring, skill building, and support toward client established goals. We know first-hand how challenging leaving can be and recognize and respect the high level of individual strength and resilience of each survivor we have the opportunity to partner with on the journey to healing.

there was never a road, but when many people walk on it,

the road comes into existence.”
