Over a third of prostituted women are homeless before the age of 18. Off the Streets is a local program that helps women involved in prostitution move towards safety, recovery, empowerment, and community reintegration. Cincinnati Union Bethel Executive Vice President and director of Off the Streets, Mary Carol Melton, and Off the Streets client Janet Allen, who is graduating from the program tomorrow, talk with us about how the program works to successfully help women leave lives in the sex trade.
