Survivor Mentor Program
This program builds supportive relationships with high-risk youth, current victims, and recovering survivors ages 12-25. It aims to provide support, a mentor team, and an invitation to community to vulnerable youth who have a history of abusive and dysfunctional relationships. Mentors focus on modeling wholesome relationships, encouraging a positive self-identify, teaching life skills, and introducing healthy choices. Being a mentor is a tremendous responsibility, requiring a MINIMUM one year commitment. The number of mentors needed is dependent on the number of mentee referrals we receive, and applicants who match the program needs will be invited to the Mentor Training. Again, because of the sensitive nature of the program, we are unable to take every applicant. If you are interested in becoming a mentor, please contact Forever Found at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to learn more about survivor mentors, CLICK HERE for more information.
Ventura County Coalition Against Human Trafficking
Forever Found is in active collaboration with other social service providers as a founding and administrative member of the Ventura County Coalition Against Human Trafficking. This network comprises key social service and law enforcement agencies who respond to trafficking cases and support victims.
Law Enforcement Partnership
Currently, there is no PROACTIVE position or unit assigned to investigate human trafficking cases in Ventura County. Forever Found is partnering with Ventura County Law Enforcement agencies to fund training and investigation of human trafficking cases. This will allow law enforcement to INTIATE investigations. 97% of designated donations go directly to trusted law enforcement partners. Click here to donate.
