Street Outreach

While much of sex trafficking has moved underground at strip clubs, massage parlors, brothels, and on-line "escort" services, street prostitution is still prevalent in the Twin Cities and is often the only opportunity we will have to reach many exploited women and girls. Our outreach workers provide street-based outreach to prostituted individuals to help build a rapport with them, let them know about Breaking Free’s programs and services, and provide hygiene kits, condoms and other seasonal items in an effort to meet their on-going needs. Outreach workers canvas areas in Minneapolis and St. Paul that are known to be high traffic areas for prostitution.

Breaking Free was established in October 1996, by Vednita Carter, Founder, as a non-profit organization serving women involved in systems of abuse, exploitation, and prostitution/sex trafficking. In the fall of 2016 Terry Forliti was appointed by Vednita Carter and the Breaking Free Board of Directors as the new Executive Director.Phone: 651-645-6557
