The mission of the Teen Project is to provide healing and hope to young women who have survived human trafficking and homelessness, many from foster care, by innovating programs focused on drug treatment, psychotherapy, life skills, higher education and mentoring all with a trauma-informed lens. The Teen Project is a nonprofit 501c3 serving at risk young women. We provide drug treatment at no cost to eligible recipients through the support of County of Los Angeles, Department of Public Health, Substance Abuse Prevention and Control (SAPC) and our gracious donors. The Teen Project is a parent to the parentless providing young women without resources with a chance at life.
