Escaping from sex trafficking takes tremendous courage and resolve. But it's only the beginning.

Why residential programs for victims of domestic minor sex trafficking?
“In order for victims to be free of coercion they need time and space away from their abusers as well as multiple services such as psychological therapy.” - Tennessee Bureau of Investigation report 2011
Residential programs are essential for trafficking survivors to find recovery and restoration. Our program meets that vital need, providing a safe haven for girls and young women in the early stages of freedom.

There is an estimated 150,000 U.S. teens trafficking in the United States every year but less than 500 dedicated beds to victims and currently Tennessee has zero beds available. Most teens end up in juvenile detention, which only re-victimizes the victim and offers no therapeutic services or in foster care with individuals that are not trained to work with children with issues so complex.

For girls ages 12-18 who have a history of commercial sexual exploitation. Our services will help children and youth from the state of Tennessee and across the nation. We seek restoration with an eye toward the future, with the intention to extend services to young boys and pregnant teen girls with histories of commercial sexual exploitation.

What will be provided:

  • Individualized Assessment
  • Case Management and Advocacy
  • Medical
  • Dental and Mental Health Services
  • 
Educational Services
  • Therapeutic Services
  • Substance Abuse services
  • Legal Advocacy
  • Life Skills Classes
  • Structured Recreational Activities
  • 
Equestrian/Animal Therapies
  • Art and Creative Expression Programs
  • Aftercare/Transition to Young Adult Program

Initially, girls ages 12-18 who have a history of commercial sexual exploitation. Our services will service children not only from the state of Tennessee but also children and youth from across the nation. Once we get the initial program going we are interested in expanding services to young boys and also pregnant teens all of who have a history of commercial sexual exploitation.
