Jamie was introduced to the life when she was 15 years old. Her older sister was working for an escort agency, and she told Jamie about the money she made. Since Jamie was a minor, she used her sister’s birth certificate to start working for the same agency. She just danced at first, but later realized it was quicker and easier for her to have sex with men for money.
After a difficult journey that included sexual and physical abuse, selling and using drugs, jail time and illness, A Safe Place admitted Jamie into our Emergency Shelter, then our Internship Program and Transitional Living House Program.
Jamie is now thriving and focused on recovery, life skills and finding employment.
She is sober and on the right path to becoming the mother her children deserve.
