YWCA Survivor Services

A- A A+

Each year the YWCA Metro St. Louis assists more than 800 victims of sexual violence and abuse including sex trafficking annually. We work collaboratively with local and federal law enforcement, area hospitals, and prosecutors as well as with other victim service agencies. The YWCA Metro St. Louis Women’s Resource Center offers a range of no cost services for survivors of human trafficking. Advocates help survivors listening to their stories and providing support throughout the healing process. They also provide case management services including criminal justice advocacy and helping survivors move forward into a healthy stable and safe living situation through our services as well as other community resources. Counseling and therapy services are also available to all survivors of human trafficking and sexual assault at no cost.

The YWCA provides ongoing training to potential first responders to victims of sex trafficking. This training consists of effective identification and response to domestic sex trafficking. Training is provided to medical professionals, local and federal law enforcement as well as community service agencies and other professional advocates.
