Our Mission

OPS provides psychosocial accompaniment to survivors of prostitution, co-creating and sustaining efforts to heal from and end this practice of gender-based violence.

Accompaniment 
Accountability
 
 
OPS facilitates healing from the harm of prostitution by providing the opportunity for survivors to engage in critical dialogue about their experience of prostitution with others and assisting them with resources and referrals to meet identified needs, goals and aspirations.
For OPS, being accountable means that those who have not been prostituted must listen to the voices, be answerable to and accept leadership from those who have. Those associated with OPS who have not been prostituted act as allies in the struggle for justice.

Survivors of Commercial Sexual Exploitation Share Their Art

Our art workshops offer survivors an opportunity to experience and build the community we have created at OPS while healing through art and self-expression. In this session, the jewelry made acts as a reminder that when the women leave our space, that community stays with them. See the Facebook post here.
