We provide specialized services to those who have experienced human trafficking and/or commercial sexual exploitation. We provide these services for adults and transition-aged youth (17-18 yo), regardless of gender, immigration status, or sexual orientation.
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. Our direct service provision to survivors is categorized by three benchmarks of healing, based on psychiatrist Judith Herman's well-established trauma recovery model: Safety, Stability, and Reintegration. In order to maintain missional language, TFP has adapted this model to the following: Safety, Stability, and Connection.
Benchmarks to Healing
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 Initiatives, 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.
