Washington County Safe Harbour

The commercial sexual exploitation of children is a global problem. Washington County’s Safe Harbour Program works with partners across Washington County and surrounding areas to promote awareness of youth trafficking and identify and provide comprehensive services to potential victims of commercial sexual exploitation.

Washington County Safe Harbour critical team provides case coordination and advocacy for commercially sexually exploited (CSE) youth. We help youth access medical care, mental health counseling, financial assistance, emergency shelter and other basic living and safety needs.

Internet safety education is also available for youth and/or parents in need of education around social media, apps, grooming, and other tactics traffickers may use to target youth online.                                                                                                          CONTACT US                                                     (518) 746-2330 or 24/7 (518) 321-0343
