About Living In Freedom Together-LIFT Inc
Living In Freedom Together (LIFT) is a survivor-led organization comprised of those who have overcome commercial sexual exploitation (CSE), and professionals sensitive to the needs of this vulnerable and marginalized population. Our mission is to provide resources, advocacy, and support to empower individuals to exit and recover from the impacts of CSE, and to end prostitution.
We work to end systems of prostitution through the implementation of the Equality Model.
What core values do you bring to your business?
The core values of LIFT are that we are all valuable and are not defined by the violence we have experienced. We believe in giving voice and power back to those whom have been marginalized and disenfranchised. We believe the movement to end sexual exploitation need be a survivor led movement listening to and learning from those who themselves survived prostitution.
How do you connect with clients to provide the best service possible?
We are a survivor led organization and provide mentorship and support to women in prostitution. Our mentors and advocates are themselves individuals whom have exited the commercial sex industry and understand the complex and unique challenges women face when trying to exit the life. We utilize a strength based model and believe in empowering and supporting our participants wherever they are in their journey.
