We work with small groups of high-risk kids to prevent exploitation while providing a safe space to discuss the affects of this crime. 



We support kids and families by offering early intervention services, support, and referrals for those affected by exploitation and trafficking.

Sexual exploitation of children and youth is hidden. You can continue to be blind to it and do nothing, or educate yourself and help prevent it from happening.”
