Equipping girls to persist forward

Help support our Pipeline to Success model


Children and Youth

Our story

Help support our Pipeline to Success model that helps girls who have experienced exploitation and sex trafficking successfully transition out of the juvenile justice system and into a life where they can thrive. 

Through evidence-based therapeutic interventions, creative arts therapy, an on-site school,  and paid internships, POETIC equips youth who have experienced commercial sexual exploitation and sex trafficking to find their voices, reclaim their narratives and persist forward.


By addressing the systems that perpetuate victimization, POETIC is igniting a movement to reject the notion that youth can be bought and sold. At POETIC, youth are not defined by their circumstances and experiences. Instead, they are empowered to become the authors of their lives.


POETIC serves the Dallas community at no cost to youth and families.
