Thousands of women are sold for sex every day in NYC, in every neighborhood of every borough. Restore finds women who have been sex trafficked and provides counseling, housing, and jobs. We empower each survivor to thrive in her community, which includes having stable housing, a job she loves, being reunited with her family, and ultimately experiencing sustained freedom -- and we have the data to prove it.
