We designed this new, restorative residential program for adolescent girls who have experienced the unique and complex trauma of child sex trafficking. We focus on the whole person, giving each girl the time and space to discover a future of possibility on a path toward physical, psychological, and spiritual wellness, strengthened by community and grace. A homelike environment fosters growth and healing as it brings together girls with shared experience; mentors who provide care, acceptance and gentle guidance; and a program that responds to the girls’ individual needs.
Child trafficking happens everywhere. Unfortunately, it preys disproportionately on our most vulnerable youth. As experts in child welfare and providers of diverse services to children and youth for more than 70 years, Saint Francis Community Services is uniquely positioned to address the needs of these children. Our staff can identify and respond to child trafficking on the front lines, caring for children every day who are highly vulnerable to the risks of trafficking across Kansas and the United States.
