No organization or ministry has enough resources to tackle any major problem or issue by itself. As an Arizona community, we need each other to bring about lasting change. When combating sex traffickers, sexual predators, and those who would prey upon our children, it will take a collective effort to not only eliminate sex trafficking from our state but also to provide the needed services to assist in healing the wounds of those who've survived the immeasurable damage caused by this horrific imprisonment in sex slavery. Below are a few organizations providing wonderful services for survivors of sex trafficking:
The Phoenix Dream Center: The Phoenix Dream Center, a volunteer driven nonprofit organization, which exists to serve the homeless, low-income, at risk youth and struggling individuals and families by providing resources, opportunities and supportive services to help them realize their dream of living a self-sufficient life. https://www.phxdreamcenter.org
StreetlightUSA: StreetLightUSA is a national leader specializing in the care and healing of victims of child sex trafficking and sexual trauma. StreetLightUSA serves girls ages 11-17. Its mission is to Transition Adolescent Girls from Trauma to Triumph. https://www.streetlightusa.org/
Project Always: Project ALWAYS provides no-cost legal services to support young people’s escape and recovery from homelessness, human trafficking, and abuse.
