What We Do

Who We Serve

Georgia Cares serves any youth who is at risk of commercial sexual exploitation and sex trafficking. Georgia Cares does not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender expression, age, height, weight, or physical or mental ability. Specifically, we work with youth who are:

  • Female, Male and Transgender youth
  • Youth up to the age of 18
  • Youth who reside in Georgia

Georgia Cares believes that youth who have been victims of exploitation or trafficking have innate strengths and resiliency to overcome their abuse. We believe that youth who are empowered, engaged in personal goal setting, and who have access to resources and supports can be restored and will thrive. We aim to support success with the youth that we serve by providing research and evidence based services, consistent support and service coordination with youth, and ongoing communication and collaboration with partner agencies. We understand the journey a youth embarks on in overcoming such victimization and we are committed to providing consistent, caring, and long term support during this process.
 

Youth at the Center

Georgia Cares’ licensed social workers meet with youth to conduct a comprehensive assessment that identifies each youth’s unique needs and strengths. Through collaboration with both public and private community partners and most importantly, the youth themselves, Georgia Cares customizes service plans that are goal-driven and outcome-oriented. Georgia Cares then monitors each youth’s progress throughout their journey to recovery by providing emotional support, connections to local resources, and a valued perspective to partners. Throughout this process, Georgia Cares keeps youth as the center focus point around which partners and services are coordinated.  This ensures that all decisions being made are in the best interest of the youth being served.  Our youth-centered approach looks like this:
