Who We Are

We are committed to helping survivors of commercial sexual exploitation.

Mission. Empower young people and their families through long-term recovery services to position them for their next chapter in life.

Vision. Built on a foundation of faith, Ascent 121 provides a continuum of care for survivors of sex trafficking.

Ascent 121

Believes that survivors of commercial sexual exploitation play a vital role in combating human trafficking. We believe that the survivor voice is vital in establishing anti-trafficking strategies that address service delivery, protection, and prevention. It is important to ensure that survivors are engaged in a manner that is both effective and empowering but that is not triggering, overwhelming, or outside of their individual skillsets.

Ascent 121 is committed to remaining Survivor-Led (by engaging individuals with lived-experience into an area of administrative leadership and oversight within the agency, be that board membership or leadership employment positions), Survivor Informed (by contracting with individuals with lived-experience to inform the policies and practices of the agency) and Survivor-Engaged (by hiring individuals with lived-experience to participate in direct-services provided by the agency).
