About Us

Journey Out is a Los Angeles-based nonprofit leading the fight for the freedom and survival of all those whose lives have been destroyed by sex trafficking or commercial sexual exploitation.

Our mission is to help victims of commercial sexual exploitation and sex trafficking leave a life of abuse and violence, overcome their fears, and empower them to reach their full potential and achieve their goals.

We provide a multi-faceted support system for those who make the difficult journey out of an existence of abuse and violence. We provide the critical tools and support necessary for women to help them break free from commercial sexual exploitation and rebuild their lives. And, to ensure younger women and girls never enter the life, we provide diversion programs focused on knowledge and empowerment.

Survival, Hope, Freedom. The three most basic and necessary steps.

  • Survival is leaving the violence and abuse behind
  • Hope is believing there is better (safer, healthier) way to live
  • Freedom is knowing you are in control of your life and your future

Every person Journey Out has served is not only an individual success story, but also an illustration of the contribution we make to the fabric of our communities, and to the fast-growing movement to end sexual exploitation.

Journey Out Programs and Services include:

  • Drop-In Center Programming
  • Prostitution Diversion Program - Alternative to Incarceration
  • Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking Prevention and Intervention Programs
  • Direct Street Outreach
  • Community & Agency Education/Training

Journey Out is committed to meeting the ongoing challenges of helping victims of commercial sexual exploitation leave a life of abuse and violence, overcome their fears and empower them to reach their potential and achieve their goals.
