RIA House—Ready, Inspire, Act – is a 501c(3) nonprofit organization committed to providing healing opportunities and supportive relationships with women surviving experiences with the commercial sex industry of sexual exploitation, prostitution and/or sex trafficking.

“There are many causes I could have chosen to support but the reason I chose to support RIA House as a corporation and as an individual, by serving on the board, is that I believe fully in their vision and mission and feel comforted knowing that the work we do is changing the lives of women and girls in our communities for the better and providing them with services they would not receive anywhere else,” said RIA House Board Member Drita Protopapa.

Protopapa is the owner of MAPA Translations in Framingham, which celebrated its 10th anniversary earlier this year.
