Our Mission

The mission of the Second Chance Advisory Board is to ensure that those involved in the commercial sex industry have access to a comprehensive system of services and resources that will allow them to develop as healthy individuals to empower themselves, their families, and communities.  The Second Chance Advisory Board is committed to improving the lives of those who are affected by sexual exploitation through the commercial sex industry by providing prostitution-specific services.

 


Vision

 By 2008, those in Lucas County involved in the commercial sex industry will have immediate access to a comprehensive system of services and resources that will enable them to achieve independence and maintain a healthy lifestyle free of abuse, addiction and exploitation.  By providing alternative opportunities, individuals, families and communities will be strengthened and revitalized. 

Strategies

  • To reduce the supply of individuals exploited by the sex industry by offering supportive and therapeutic services.
  • To reduce the demand for exploitive sexual services by collaborating with police and neighborhood groups and by operating a John School.
  • To educate, sensitize, and pursue quality responses from the criminal justice, health care, and social service systems to those exploited by the commercial sex industry.
  • To partner with communities in an effort to reduce prostitution in neighborhoods.
  • To be a voice for change in systems that create and maintain barriers to those seeking legal justice, political participation, and assistance from health and social services.
  • To identify and secure reliable sources of funding that will ensure that an adequate level of services can be provided.
  • Develop a comprehensive and reciprocal professional network of providers to establish a coordinated effort, collaborating and cross-fertilizing in areas of education, training, services and linkages for individuals engaged in the commercial sex industry.
  • To provide prevention services those at-risk of becoming involved in the commercial sex industry.
