Non-profit helping woman get off streets
OKLAHOMA CITY — A local non-profit is opening its doors to provide a safe haven for women forced into human trafficking and prostitution.
No Boundaries International is remodeling a house that will provide prostitutes with the help they need to get off the streets and turn their lives around.
It is called the Hope House.
The organization purchased the home in a neighborhood known for prostitution.
“We are really serious about making an impact in this area that is so victimized by prostitution and those who are being prostituted,” Co-Founder of No Boundaries Lori Basey said.
As a safety precaution, the organization does not publicize the location of the home.
There are no signs outside and some neighbors may not even know what they do at the home.
The organization believes the home will make it easier for women to reach out for help.
“We want to do whatever we can to give them an opportunity to come and know the Lord,” volunteer Fred Meador said.
The home is equipped with security cameras, which were donated by a local attorney.
Last week, workers for Myers Roofing replaced the roof of the home free of charge.
The house will open in the next few months.
