Crisis Recovery Services
We work closely with the Los Angeles Probation Department, Long Beach Police Department, Los Angeles Police Department and the Los Angeles Innocence Lost Task Force to be on-call 24 hours a day when the victims are identified. We travel to the location of the intervention, conduct a crisis assessment and begin case management and advocacy for this child immediately. The location of these crisis intervention interviews can range from police departments, to the child’s home, to local juvenile halls. At this stage we begin to coordinate resources to meet the child’s basic needs, such as shelter, clothing, food, medical services, and mental health care. As a 5-year member of the Los Angeles Metropolitan Human Trafficking Task Force, we are able to effectively strategize and collaborate with federal and local law enforcement officers who specialize in working with DMST (Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking) cases.
