Sexual contact that is forced, coerced, manipulated, or compelled through intimidation IS ABUSE.
Thousands of young women and children have their innocence, their bodies, their spirit, their hope, their families, sometimes even their very lives ripped away from them daily. This horror sounds so heinous that most of us can’t imagine that this could happen here in the United States but this is the reality of what children and young adult sex trafficking victims are experiencing in communities across the United States right now.
Our first safe home in the United States called the Refuge Home opened in December of 2012 in Missouri and was the very first holistic home and safe haven specifically for American female survivors of sex trafficking.
Crisis Aid is one of few organizations in the world to have a physical, full-time presence in a police department to support victims of sex trafficking.
Through awareness and prevention, we can stop raising victims
Crisis Aid would be happy to provide educational information regarding human trafficking that can be implemented in high schools, universities, churches, and other events. We can also provide videos and photos for you to use as you work to bring awareness and prevention. Crisis Aid will work with you to host a one-time event, a series of events, or a semester project.
Children’s Anti-exploitation Partnership Program
C.A.P.P. is a revolutionary new collaborative initiative that focuses on reaching children at risk for sex trafficking or other forms of child sexual abuse. C.A.P.P. provides advocacy, resources, and support to children and families identified in internet/electronics-related crimes against children and human trafficking investigations. C.A.P.P. provides tools such as assistance accessing Internet Safety Education (ISE) programs to help parents of children engaged in high-risk sexual activities online, activities that leave them vulnerable to trafficking or other forms of sexual abuse.
It breaks our heart to turn away these victims.
These girls desperately need you!
