THE STORY:

Adria Gallup-Black wrote -

Girls Educational and Mentoring Services' (GEMS ) mission is to empower young women, ages 12-21, who have experienced sexual exploitation and domestic trafficking to exit the commercial sex industry and develop to their full potential. GEMS is committed to ending commercial sexual exploitation and domestic trafficking of children by changing individual lives, transforming public perception, and revolutionizing the systems and policies that impact sexually exploited youth.

GEMS provides a continuum of services, including:

• Street Outreach
• Court Advocacy and Alternatives to Incarceration Program
• Comprehensive Case Management
• Individual Counseling
• Education, Recreational and Therapeutic Groups
• Youth Employment and Leadership Training
• Transitional & Crisis Housing
• Referral Services

GEMS uses a holistic trauma-informed treatment model in their programs to address girls and young women’s complex needs throughout their transition and development. GEMS has garnered national recognition for its groundbreaking work and is recognized as the country's leading resource on the commercial sexual exploitation and domestic trafficking of girls and young women.
