Kathi Hardy has been through so much in life, she wanted to make sure others were spared from the horrors. Kathi is a recovering drug addict and former prostitute who has dedicated much of her life helping those who have found themselves in similar life situations.
A faithful participant in San Diego's "Prostitution Impact Panel," which has hosted over 808 men with a staggering low 3.5% recidivism rate, Kathi has also helped start the Survivors of the Streets group, which the City Attorney's office utilizes as a First Offender Diversion Program for adults who were picked up for prostitution activities. Many of the 700 participants have been victims of human trafficking. Working with Juvenile Hall and Child Welfare, her group has seen hundreds of children who have been victimized, with the goal to reeducate them so they may lead healthier lifestyles.
Kathi’s program won the Norma Hotaling Award, Chief's Award from San Diego County Juvenile Probation, and recognition by New Alternatives, Inc. in San Diego.
