At Covenant House, we’ve been working with survivors of sex trafficking for nearly 40 years.
Over the past decade, we have seen an increase in young women seeking our support. Although homeless youth are among the most vulnerable to exploitation, we've learned there is no one type of victim. Sex trafficking can happen to anyone.
In 2015, we began to work with police and community partners to identify service needs for victims. In 2016, we developed our Urban Response Model anti-trafficking plan and launched a $10-million campaign to support its development and execution.
Our work with young women over the decades, combined with our more recent experiences, has made Covenant House a national leader in providing direct services to survivors of sex trafficking. We have supported over 200 survivors to reclaim their lives since launching our Urban Response Model.
