National Shelter Landscape Map


 

Our vision is that any survivor, anywhere in the nation, has access to qualified, compassionate care. In an effort to see that vision come into reality, we are addressing the deficit of shelter-care programs by learning the existing landscape, and discerning where new shelters can be strategically placed.

Note: While there are other service providers that also serve victims of commercial sexual exploitation, the organizations depicted on this map are those which are dedicated exclusively to serving this population.
