The Foundling’s Phoenix Project uses mentoring and evidence-based models to support survivors of human trafficking and young people at risk of trafficking as they work to attain stability and independence.
Taking a survivor-centered approach that focuses on lived experience, the program works with children and young adults to address both the impact of trafficking and the risk factors that can lead to exploitation.
Each Phoenix Project participant is assigned a mentor, who provides intensive case management under the Eisenhower Quantum Opportunities Program model. Depending on individual needs and goals, participants may also receive Cognitive Processing Therapy, a therapeutic model that leads trauma survivors to challenge unhealthy beliefs and move forward, and sex education though the Health Improvement Intervention for Teens (HIP Teens) model, a risk-reduction group intervention that specifically targets building healthy relationships and improving the health and psychosocial potential of participants around their own sexual health and decision-making. The program also offers wraparound supports, and participants will be connected to other Foundling services and other community-based systems for assistance attaining necessities and attaining life goals.
