Jessica Li, Executive Director of SafeHouse in San Francisco talks about the tragic life of homeless prostitutes, often dependent on drug habits, years of abuse, violence, incest, and scorned by family and society.
Li explains how SafeHouse serves as a harbor of refuge. And the women are guided through counseling, nutrition education, money management, computer competency, and vocational guidance classes.
Innovative internship programs offer job skills training that often lead to permanent employment. SafeHouse relies on donations, volunteers, grants, and assistance from San Francisco businesses.
