About Us

As a secular nonprofit, Resilience Rising combats the commercial sexual exploitation of children in the United States by providing a ten-bed residential program for survivors with opportunities for safety, healing, and empowerment. Serving eight adolescent females and two small children to accommodate teenage mothers, Resilience Rising provides a long-term, trauma-informed program wherein youth can develop the coping and life skills needed to break the inter-generational cycle of abuse and poverty that drives this child welfare, public health, and human rights problem.

Resilience Rising utilizes an evidence-based sustainable model of care and recovery for sexually trafficked and exploited young girls, supported by highly trained and experienced staff truly dedicated to the cause at both the macro and micro levels. Some of the key elements of Resilience Rising’s programming include a secular foundation, trauma informed approach, gender sensitive model, survivorship element, cultural sensitivity and competence, and a positive youth development lens.
