Our mission is to end the marginalization of boys and transgender girls, who are either at risk or have been victimized by human trafficking and/or exploitation, through prevention, identification and treatment. We will accomplish these goals through community education and mobilization, direct outreach, survivor empowerment and the provision of a male-specific, victim-centered, trauma-informed drop-in program and restorative support services.

Street Outreach and Supportive Services
Street Outreach & Supportive Services Program aims to identify and rescue current victims, while empowering those at risk in order to avoid being victimized by human trafficking and other violence on the streets.
Once identified, youth are extracted from dangerous situations and transported to emergency shelter where they receive access to emergency medical care and behavioral health assessment. They are given food and clothing. The outreach worker who also serves as their advocate then coaches the youth through the daunting and disjointed social services system so that they receive supportive services. Outreach advocates team with case managers from other providers to develop a customized care plan that includes a road map to restoration.
Program identifies and rescues current victims of human trafficking, but directly combats this heinous crime's root causes of homelessness, lack of access to medical care & social services, access to education and connects with job training.
