Mission: Women Against Child Trafficking is dedicated to helping victims/survivors of human trafficking, child sex trafficking, youth in crisis, teens/young adults in crisis and abandoned youth. We work hand in hand with the FBI, the Riverside County Sheriff's Department and the City of Riverside Police Detectives, along with aiding and supporting Operation SafeHouse, a youth shelter that houses rescued children. Our mission is to protect children/teens from predators who profit from selling children/teens into sexual slavery. We help spread awareness and inform the public. We educate parents, teachers, children, religious leaders and others in positions of authority of the ever-growing crimes against children. We provide 72 hour emergency shelter, transportation, victim services, food, clothing, shoes, blankets, toiletries and address the immediate needs of the victims from 11 to 18 years old. We also provide mentoring and transitional living to survivors (young adults who have had no home support, essentially abandoned youth) who have been in the system up until age 23. We provide the survivors with basic and other essentials such as housing, food, clothing, tuition, educational materials and mentorship to guide them into adulthood.
