What We Believe

We believe that all people are created with immeasurable value and purpose and should be treated with dignity and respect. At-risk and in-risk youth are particularly vulnerable to various forms of abuse and exploitation. Individuals who are surviving on the streets do not need to be criminalized for surviving, nor do they need forced services. Rather, they need victim-centered/survivor-led responses that intentionally and holistically embolden individuals into becoming who they are created to be.
