The vision of Resilience Rising is to reduce the incidence and prevalence of the commercial sexual exploitation of children in the United States through our mission of providing opportunities for safety, healing, and empowerment to survivors. We aim to accomplish this mission by providing a long-term, therapeutic residential program in a home-like environment wherein youth can develop the coping skills and life skills needed to break the inter-generational cycle of abuse and poverty that drives this tragedy.
The name of our nonprofit, Resilience Rising, comes from the concept of triumphing over adversity. Our girls, because they have survived their lives thus far, are by definition resilient. Our program helps hone their inherent resilience with various skills to help them rise.
