Our PRIDE Program (Promoting Recovery, Independence, Dignity, and Equality) has been helping women and children escape sex trafficking for 40 years. This work is intensive, with a trauma-informed approach. In addition to one-to-one work with counselors including safety planning, counseling and support, and legal assistance, PRIDE staff coach survivors in reaching their educational and employment goals, giving them the best chance to permanently escape sex-trafficking.
We are one of only a few organizations in the country goes beyond the traditional crime victim services model: not only providing direct services for healing and empowerment to survivors, so that they can rebuild their lives, BUT to the children as well so they won’t become future victims. Many of the women seeking services have children, and for many women in the program, it has been an intergenerational issue of trauma in their families. 78% of survivors PRIDE have served over the past five years continue to live a life free of trafficking.
