Community Case Management in Toledo

Our Community Case Management team serves youth ages 11- 19 who have survived the realities of sex-trafficking, are actively being exploited, or are at risk of victimization. Our services are based on a comprehensive, trauma-informed care model. This personalized process is tailored to meet the complex needs of the most vulnerable youth in our community, young people who have been taken advantage of, coerced, and forced into exploitation.
