CHILD WELFARE

Systematic Approach For Exploited & Traumatized Youth (SAFETY)

Sex trafficking or sexual exploitation is the control over a person, by the use of real or perceived threats of harm, if demands of sexual acts are not fulfilled. Victims of domestic sex trafficking generally come from vulnerable populations, including runaways, foster care children, homeless or displaced individuals, migrants, and economically disadvantaged.

The SAFETY program at Chrysalis was designed to evaluate, treat, and provide safety to victims of domestic sex trafficking in our communities. The emotional, psychological, and physical effects of coercion and sexual exploitation are addressed through outpatient counseling and individualized support services.
