Mission Statement

Patty's Place is a drop-in support and referral center for women who are engaged in sex work or who are at risk of sexual exploitation.

Description

We provide basic services such as hygiene items, condoms, and clothing which help these women be safer in their current lives. We also offer counseling and referrals for longer-term services that can help them improve their lives, leave the sex trade or avoid entering it. Most of the women with whom we work have suffered from years of abuse and have a variety of overlapping problems and needs. Patty's Place gives them a network of supportive relationships and help with navigating the diverse services they need. Patty's Place is a collaborative effort between several non-profit agencies, churches and government officials. It is led by a steering committee that directs operations and a group of trained volunteers.
