Art of Hope supports women at risk

Posted: Updated:

Artists from Northwest Ohio came together Saturday to support women escaping prostitution and domestic violence.

The "Art of Hope" show featured various art works, poetry readings and live music. The money raised will help the Hope Ministry restore a home for women who've escaped the sex trade.

Executive director Genevieve Abalos said, "They are valuable, loved human beings. And we want them to see themselves that same way. We don't want to ever see them as ex-prostitutes. We want them to see themselves as the person they always wished they were."
