The program Women in Support of Health (WISH) utilizes evidence-based practices and programs to provide services to women engaged in, or at high risk for becoming engaged in, prostitution or sex work. The WISH program is intended to facilitate access to needed health/behavioral health care that meet the unique health needs of the population of focus (POF). The Care Advocate helps the client identify personal skills, abilities, and assets and will develop a strong alliance with the participants to set realistic client driven goals. All WISH programs and services meet the participants “where they are” and offer a broad menu of services to engage individuals at varying levels of readiness.  Steps are taken to divert all WISH participants away from unhealthy lifestyles while helping increase the client’s self-esteem, resources and quality of life.  The WISH Team operates in Wilmington, Delaware and surrounding New Castle County. Beautiful Gate provides care advocacy to all participants of the program. To make a referral, click here for an information packet.
