Safe House Initiative for Sexually Exploited Boys

safe shelter for sex trafficked boys


Creating a ‘model’ survivor-led & peer-mentored safe house, and strengthening their online art program, transmits a significant message to all the survivors (and to the perpetrators). The survivors are a strong intelligent and creative group and will not be bowed. The survivors, with guts and bloody hard work, are raising the quality of their lives and leading their peers to safety.

Why is it so urgent we create a model survivor-led and peer-mentored safe house art program? The most logical and clearest answer, I feel, is offered by the boys imagery and poetry (in attached document).

Thank you for permitting the boys to stroll, just like that, into your lives with their stories; and a huge hug to you for believing the boys stories.

With friendship
