Mission/Beliefs

We envision a world without commercial sexual exploitation.

Mission

Our mission is to provide services to commercially sexually exploited youth, and to work for systemic change with the youth we serve.

Our Beliefs:

  • Commercially sexually exploited children (CSEC) are victims and survivors of  multiple human rights abuses who need and deserve specialized treatment, as well as non-judgmental, trauma-informed, and healing-centered services provided by staff who possess cultural humility, compassion, and relevant life experience.
  • CSEC are victims of child sexual abuse in the form of commercial sexual exploitation, not child prostitutes.
  • Creating a permanent record of a child’s sexual exploitation through media or any other means further exploits the child.
