What participants have said about the H.O.P.E. Class:

Strengths of the Class:

  • “The steps and process of prostitution”
  • “No beat-around-the-bush conversation”
  • “Presenter was helpful and knowledgeable. She wasn’t rude or intimidating (easier to ask questions).”

One thing you took away from the class:

  • “How past experiences led up to adult choices”
  • “That you shouldn’t be ashamed because there is help even when you think you are alone.”
  • “That I’m NEVER going back to this lifestyle.”
