For anyone who identifies as having experienced Commercial Sexual Exploitation (CSE) either in the present or past will be referred to a STEP Case Manager who will provide case management and unconditional support as well as resources and referrals for medical, legal, therapeutic and social services across Pierce County.
This Case Manager will provide consistent, non-judgmental support and belief to any individual who accesses Advocacy services through STEP. These services can be accessed by clients at their time of choosing or by referral and can be refused by the client at any point in time. We believe everyone has the right to self-determination when it comes to choosing their path of healing and service provision when possible.
The goal of STEP is to enhance client services by actively connecting CSE victim/survivors with supportive systems in the community that can assist them by increasing safety and promoting self-sufficiency.
