Our Women's Drop-in Center & Programs

RDS is committed to providing both short-term and long-term solutions to help women involved in human trafficking build better lives. We run a women's drop-in center in Compton, CA, and offer a variety of court-ordered and non-court-ordered programs for those who have been involved in sex trafficking or arrested for prostitution.

Our Drop-In Center

The RDS women's drop-in center is a place of refuge for survivors of sex trafficking. We provide snacks, toiletries, STI educational materials, GED preparation, a place to shower, condoms, and additional resources based on each individual's needs. Operated by a network of members and volunteers, the center is open 16 hours a week — but we will begin operating 40 hours a week once we achieve full funding and staffing. All of our services are housed in the drop-in center, with the exception of our support services, which we provide in collaboration with other agencies.

Prostitution Diversion Program

The Prostitution Diversion Program (PDP) is a court-ordered and non-court-ordered program for women who are involved in sex trafficking and have been arrested for prostitution. When a victim has been arrested on sex trafficking charges, she will be given the option to either accept or decline PDP. The program is implemented during group sessions.

Our PDP is entitled "Ending The Game" and lasts 1-18 weeks. The goal of the program is to mentor and educate clients, thereby encouraging them to exit the life of prostitution while providing them with the support they need to live self-sufficient, productive lives ultimately.

Supportive Services

The Supportive Services are provided to victims of sex trafficking who are participants in the PDP group sessions, drop-in center clients, and non-court-ordered referrals. The Supportive Services complement the Diversion Program. All women in RDS will participate with PDP group meetings; however, referral for Supportive Services includes:

  • Mental Health
  • Anger Management
  • Parenting
  • Domestic Violence
  • GED Preparation
  • Substance/Alcohol Abuse
  • Computer Access
  • Mentoring
  • Job Preparation
  • Shelter Referrals
  • STI Workshops
  • And More

Temporary Assistance

We all need help from time to time. RDS collaborates with sheltering programs throughout Los Angeles County to provide housing for young women involved in prostitution. At the first point of contact, an intake form may be completed by a restoration worker, or a contact number will be provided to the young women. Then, the participants may be transferred or referred to a program that best fits their needs. The participants will be required to follow the guidelines and rules of the sheltering program. A restoration team will be assigned to the individual, and we will oversee and make every effort to meet the needs of each participant.
