What We Do

We provide a specialized means of care to minors who are victims of sex trafficking.

The Problem

According to a recent report published by the U.S Department of Health and Human Services, the impacts and effects of Sex Trafficking on Minors is devastating. Affected victims experience an array of post trauma symptoms including physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual repercussions.

These include, but are not limited to physical health problems (frequently associated with beating), reproductive health problems (due to exposure to HIV and other STD’s), mental health problems (specifically in the form of PTSD/Stockholm Syndrome and Trauma Bonding), alcohol and drug addiction, extreme anxiety and fear, as well as severe depression associated with guilt and shame, inability to trust, self-destructive behaviors, and malnutrition.

The Solution

While minor Victims of Sex Trafficking are frequently recognized as children who have been victims of sexual abuse, it is imperative to note that their level of abuse and trauma is so severe, and thus requires a specialized means of care, which we provide by means of a Residential Safe House Program.
