Raising funds for REST | Real Escape From the Sex Trade
REST | Real Escape from the Sex Trade was founded in November 2009 by a small team of women with experience dealing with troubled youth and sexual abuse issues, and other members of the team with backgrounds in wraparound services and case management to develop relationships with people being commercially sexually exploited (tracked), or otherwise engaged in the sex trade or are at risk to enter.
Each year, they provide direct services to hundreds of people exploited by the sex trade in Seattle and the greater King County area. Through their holistic continuum of care (prevention, intervention, and aftercare), they serve those who are at-risk, actively in, and those taking steps towards exiting a life of sexual exploitation. Their desire is to see Washington become hostile to traffickers and to work themselves out of a job.
