Vulnerability | Poverty | Trauma
Many victims are in crisis. All are vulnerable. Youth, poverty, substance abuse – these are the things that put our children and young adults at risk of tactics used by their perpetrators, including drugs, money, and emotional manipulation.

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 going 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.
Our work is having an impact: 78% of survivors they have served over the past five years continue to live a life free of trafficking.
