Survivor Care and Support

Since 2010, Gracehaven has become a recognized leader in Central Ohio and the state in coming alongside and providing critical services to teenage survivors of sex trafficking. These services include among other things:

- comprehensive, trauma-informed case management services to current victims, connecting them to resources they need for safety, stabilization and recovery.

- assessments and recommendations to juvenile courts and social service providers for victim care. 

- victim advocacy at juvenile courts

As well, in August 2015 Gracehaven filled a critical gap in services for victims by opening a therapeutic residential group home for girls who have been sexually trafficked. Licensed by the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services, this home provides residential care and treatment for youth from all over the state of Ohio. Some of the key services provided to the youth in the home include: individual and group counseling, education (online school), life skills development, case management, and planning for successful living and recovery outside of the program.
