Servants Anonymous Society is a unique registered charity, founded in 1989, that operates 24 hours a day all year-round. The EXploitation Intervention and Transition (EXIT) Program provides women with a chance to rebuild their lives. It removes them from living a life on the street, helps them conquer their battle with addictions, and teaches them that violence and sexual exploitation is not okay, helps to break this vicious cycle for their children, and allows them to further their education so they have other means to support themselves. The program is a proven, trauma-informed model delivered as a continuum of services.
The EXIT Program offers immediate and safe Supportive Housing allowing women to stabilize and begin the process of healing, and transitional housing to fully independent living as the women progress through the program. We deliver crucial services including: a recovery-oriented, comprehensive Life-skills Program, Women’s Health & Wellness Program, Employment training with paid work experience, an onsite Childcare and Child/Family Development Program, and a long-term Community Follow-Care Service.
The EXIT Program not only focuses on recovery, but also ensures best practice holistic support is provided for Participants as they build the life-skills, employment, and resource networks they need to achieve stability and independence outside the sex trade in the long-term.
More than an agency, SAS is above all, a community. We have over 27 years of experience providing these services for the 775+ women we have served since first opening our doors.
