Bad Date Reporting

Since 2008, H.O.P.E. Outreach has been supporting the safety of sex workers and exploited women,  by the use of Bad Date Reports.  H.O.P.E. Outreach uses the “Bad Date Alert”, a system which was implemented to decrease and deter violence against women by providing vital information and resources to these women to help them stay safe. Bad Date Alerts also provide an effective tool for relevant agencies and service providers.
