Reducing Risks for VULNERABLE STREET YOUTH, and Prevention and Empowerment Program for Women Involved in the Sex Trade and Vulnerable Youth
In 2018, ARISE Ministry, Toronto, ON partnered with a youth group home to support young people who had experienced sexual exploitation and/or are at high risk of street involvement.
Case managers and peer support workers met individually with 41 vulnerable, CSA protected youth both individually and through group skill set sessions. This management approach improved self-sufficiency including school reenrolment, employment, family reconnection, safe housing attainment, and justice seeking against perpetrators.
