Asociación La Alianza (ALA) is a sanctuary for girls ages 12-18 who are survivors of sexual violence, exploitation, and/or trafficking. Our residence includes a shelter for teen mothers, their babies (up to 5 years old), and younger sisters who are at risk of similar harm.

Our Shelter

Most of the girls in ALA’s shelter have been referred to us by law enforcement and the courts, having been removed from homes and other situations where they were exploited and their lives placed in grave danger. Our shelter is open 24 hours a day, every day.

Our Programs

Our residential program comes with all the wrap-around services the young girls in our care need to confront the trauma they’ve experienced and move their lives forward. Our programs also include family reintegration, legal representation and advocacy, and early childhood development for the daughters and sons of our young residents. We also provide public education and awareness programs for those public servants most likely to be in a position to identify abuse and sex trafficking survivors.
