The Emergency Receiving Center (ERC) is a critical need for women in the community who are trying to exit the sex trade and reach their personal goals.

Women who visit the ERC will be able to receive stabilizing support like crisis intervention, case management, referrals for chemical dependency and mental health services, survivor support groups, education and life skills assistance. Guests of the ERC may be women who are actively or recently involved in the sex trade, and/or experiencing chemical dependency and mental health-related needs.
