We will meet anyone where they are. Our Anti-Human Trafficking program is lead by trained professionals and provides a number of safe, confidential, and non-judgmental services.
We aim to help survivors find healing and justice, and want to help establish community connections that can be used for additional support.
Intervention and Diversion
We offer one-on-one and group mentoring to increase protective factors for high-risk or runaway youth (ages 12-17). We also collaborate with Project Hope to divert individuals with prostitution-related criminal charges, focusing on increasing quality of life and developing safe, supportive connections within our community.
Safe location for forensic interviews
We have a safe and non-judgmental space that can be used for forensic interviews. Each interview is conducted by a trained forensic interviewer using the RADAR (Recognizing Abuse Disclosure types and Responding) interviewing protocol, aimed to reduce the number of interviews conducted, increase comfortability, and ensure ethics throughout the investigative process.
Forensic interviews can only be requested by Social Service officials and law enforcement.
We provide several free, onsite therapy services for survivors and caregivers, to support individuals in the healing process. The types of therapy we provide are Parent-Child Interactive Therapy, Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavior Therapy, and Cognitive Processing Therapy.
