Exiting exploitative situations can be a long and very hard process. Access to service providers and resources before, during, and after a survivor's escape is crucial. Often this is a process and can take many attempts. We work with community-based organizations to support a crisis response where individuals provide trauma-informed support and emergency shelter coordination for CSE and trafficking survivors. Some survivors are not ready to actively work on goals in case management, however they want to maintain access to survivor community and/or communication with a case manager-our Intervention program is a good fit for these survivors as well.
We are working to build a community-led by survivors for survivors. We believe in making a positive and permanent impact in the lives of survivors by ensuring access to sustainable services. We aim to ensure that everyone has the option not to sell their bodies, have the opportunity to become free and stay free from exploitation, have the support to walk through trauma recovery, increase healthy connection with themselves and others, achieve educational and vocational goals, and a seat at the table to use their voice however they choose.
Safety can be shattered by exploitation and trauma. The purpose of this program is to help re-establish a sense of safety so that we can help survivors begin to rebuild. This is where we provide Intervention and Emergency Shelter.
Stability is stolen from survivors during their trafficking an exploitation. Through our comprehensive Case Management and Housing Initiative, we help survivors find and maintain stability.
We are all wired for connection. We believe that healing cannot happen in isolation, and community is the key to survivors achieving sustainable change. TFP offers survivors an opportunity to build connection with themselves and others through Peer Support, Purposeful Living, and Joy-Building.
