SafeHouse provides emergency shelter, counseling and case management to all youth victims under the age of 18 in Riverside County. Our dedicated and highly trained staff recognizes that victims do not become survivors overnight and diligently works to move them from “victim” to “survivor” oftentimes up to 2-4 years of services are needed for victims to become self-sufficient.
Since 2010, SafeHouse has provided the community with quarterly Protect and Prevent meetings held in different locations throughout the county in order to educate local non-profits, service providers, and community leaders on how to identify and report trafficking in their area. SafeHouse also provides youth in our emergency shelters with HT 101 in order to educate them on the dangers of social media, life on the streets, and how to report trafficking if they are approached.
In 2018, SafeHouse established a partnership with Rebirth Homes who now provides support for adult victims of labor and sexual trafficking. If you are over the age of 18 and need assistance, please contact the staff at Rebirth Homes.
Our goal is to restore dignity to trafficking victims.
Victims range in their needs of being great to small, recognizing that each victim is unique. Some of the services that victims receive are: shelter and housing, food, clothing, medical, dental, mental health, interpreter services, immigration and civil legal services, victim advocacy, literacy, education, job training, life skills training, and 24-hour evening and weekend response.
