The EXploitation Intervention & Transition (EXIT) Program

The EXIT Program at RESET provides a proven and trauma-informed three-phase continuum of services. RESET programming enables girls 16+, women, and their children, to stabilize, heal, reconnect, and not only exit sexual exploitation and sex trafficking but to also positively and completely rebuild their lives.

The EXIT Program is a long-term recovery based, life skills program that includes housing.

At point of program intake, women are assigned a Key Worker who supports their progress throughout the EXIT Program. Key Workers also support women’s success by providing and facilitating links to resources that address specific, individualized, identified needs and goals. The EXIT Program involves a full-time (5-day week/7-hour day) 12+ months of in-classroom recovery-based life-skills development in tandem with 2 stages of supportive housing.
