A home providing care and support for vulnerable women involved in prostitution
Dar Hosea is a safe, tranquil, and welcoming residence which serves as a daily drop-in centre for women seeking refuge from abuse, violence, poverty, addiction, mental health issues, and any other harm and turmoil. Despite not being a residential programme through low-threshold drop-in services, they offer a comprehensive approach to service users. They acknowledge the importance of extending their services through education outside their premises. As such, several different initiatives are organised as a means of raising awareness on the realities encountered by service users, through talks and sessions, social media and professional networking.
The founding members in 2013 realised that in Malta, women caught in prostitution had nowhere to go if they needed help or support. It was easily noticed that numerous women were not only submerged and consumed by a vicious cycle of substance misuse, which was destroying their lives, but in parallel to these sufferings, these women were also trapped in a violent and harmful dark world of prostitution. Dar Hosea represents a safe home and offers a hospitable space, where anyone who enters is free from the shackles of judgement which is usually accompanied by prejudice against women trapped in prostitution. DH symbolises the warmth and love of a caring family ambiance.
