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.
Free provides outreach, educational groups, intake assessments and case
management to exploited women and girls in corrections facilities focusing on
Ramsey/Hennepin/Olmsted County Corrections, Shakopee prison, Plymouth
workhouse, and juvenile detention centers.
