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.
Fully committed to and believing in the incredible resilience of survivors and marginalized populations, we maintain a diverse staff, many of whom are survivors themselves. This creates a powerful model and bond between our staff and clients, who are able to walk and grow alongside someone who can relate to their lived experience on a deeper level.
Our clients are among the most vulnerable, many of whom experience multiple issues such as homelessness, mental health, domestic violence, and substance abuse while dealing with compounded layers of trauma suffered from a life in the commercial sex industry.
Journey Out Programs and Services include:
Every person Journey Out has served is not only an individual success story, but also serves as a testament to the contribution we make to the fabric of our communities and the much-needed movement to end sexual exploitation.
