We're proud to launch our 2018 #Because campaign to support women over the age of 18 who are victims of sexual exploitation, domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking. Progressive Transition(s), Inc. ensures that these women receive services and care that are otherwise not readily available to them.
We need your help! Donate now to ensure Progressive Transition(s), Inc. has the funding it needs to provide another year of valuable services to these women.
#Because young women can become involved in the world of prostitution and sexual exploitation through no fault of their own.
#Because domestic/intimate partner violence, human trafficking, sexual exploitation, and sexual assault are all forms of VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN.
#Because 40% of women experience physical intimate partner violence in their lifetime.
#Because victims of sexual exploitation are treated as criminals and not victims by some law enforcement agencies.
#Because over the past three years, Progressive Transition(s), Inc. has received over 300 referrals for services for these victims from Alameda and surrounding Bay Area counties.
#Because victims over the age of 18 have limited access to the services needed to address their trauma, mental health and victimization; Progressive Transition(s), Inc. is the only provider of services to women over the age of 18 in the Bay Area.
#Because Progressive Transition(s), Inc. is headquartered minutes away from, "The Track," Oakland's International Boulevard and San Pablo Avenue which are hubs for prostitution, sex trafficking and sexual exploitation we are accessible to those who need us most.
#Because Progressive Transition(s), Inc. has dedicated itself to helping these victims/survivors of domestic violence, human trafficking, sexual exploitation, and sexual assault begin to live violence free lives.
#Because through our programs and services, participants identify and address the trauma associated with their past and begin to develop a "blueprint" that will address their immediate needs and achieve their long term goals.
#Because your support will allow us to continue providing services such as mental health assessment/screening, peer counseling, life skills & process groups, education and intense case management.
#Because Progressive Transition(s), Inc. does not charge a fee for its services; it is funded by generous donations from friends and supporters like you.
#Because Progressive Transition(s), Inc. does not receive federal funding for services.
#Because every victim and survivor is someone’s mother or someone’s daughter or someone's friend.
#Because your donation can make a real difference in the life of a local woman in need of help.
