One Way Out reaches into dark places to help women out of destructive, life controlling lifestyles. We help women from the sex industry such as exotic dancing, prostitution and escorting. We help women coming out of jail, women with addictions, and women rescued from human trafficking. We give them a second chance, helping them get back on their feet.  The women we serve receive emotional healing and life skills training; help with tangible needs, and spiritual direction. We disciple, encourage, love, coach, teach, help find jobs, supply new wardrobes, and even provide job training through our upscale thrift store. 

The outcome is women carrying on new destinies of life, hope and love. They in turn give to others what they have received. Whole families have been set free. Destinies change from hopeless to hopeful.

Job Description:

We need help in our upscale thrift store which helps support us helping others. The thrift store not only supports what we do financially but serves as a resource in supplying clothing and household items to the women we serve and others in need. 

Ongoing service needs are sorting through donations, pricing, recycling, and general retail store help including marketing, merchandising, serving customers and cashiering. Other opportunities are helping with our E-bay store, Craigslist listings, website, pricing research, general office work, and marketing projects.  Special events and tutoring opportunities will be posted as needed.
