As a port city, thousands of young girls are trafficked into and through this city. Street level prostitution, while visible and heartbreaking, only represents 5% of the exploitation of these girls. The rest is conducted behind closed doors – in massage parlours, brothels, and through the sale of these girls on internet sites, etc. The majority of services that are offered to this population focus on harm reduction and short term assistance. Our program is the only one that will accommodate both women and their children on a long-term basis, and is one of few that has a recovery component. [/fusion_flip_box]

The overwhelming need for services designed to meet the specific recovery needs of women that are sexually exploited caused the SA Foundation to plant its long-term recovery centre in Vancouver in 2010 with a two-pronged focus: The first focus is providing recovery programming to young women and their children in the Vancouver area. Today, this program provides a beautiful home for up to five women and their children, recovery programming full time through the ASK Learning Centre, and job preparation and training through onsite business ventures.

Women from across British Columbia continue to apply for a spot in the Vancouver program and there are never enough beds. To help offset this need a second phase of programming was added, which is transitional housing support and Advanced Programming. At this level, program participants are focusing on job skill acquisition and educational goals while living independently in the community with financial aid and support from the Foundation. This has increased the number of beds we are able to offer in Vancouver and ensures a successful transition into the community at large once the women finish our program.

The second focus of the program is to provide on-site training to emerging leaders who are planting the SA program in other cities. As the international internship centre, the Vancouver location provides a full training curriculum encompassing all program and operational components of the program model.

We need your support to keep this pivotal program operational! Please consider giving; all support goes to offset program delivery costs.
