At times they are provided with medical support and counseling. Their children are provided with psychosocial support, given admission in schools and hostels. These all add up to taking the project towards achieving its goals and objectives.
Primary beneficiaries of the project are the women who are victimized by human trafficking and are forced into flesh trade at red light area of BudhwarPeth, Pune. CSS sees them in four categories i.e. 1) minor girls who are in flesh trade, 2) young pregnant sex workers, 3) children of commercial sex workers and 4) sex workers who hardly get business any more, but still cannot go out of the bondage on their own.

During the first half of the year seven girls could be rescued and sheltered at Home of Hope. And during the second half of the year another sixteen girls could be rescued and rehabilitated. Three of those girls are minors and another one of them has two kids at the age of 19.
