Florida’s Leading Network of 24/7/365 Care for Child and Young Adult Victims of Sex Trafficking
Open Doors Outreach Network: A Survivor-Centered, Trauma-Responsive Team Approach
Open Doors Promising Practices of Care
In an inclusive and non-judgmental environment, survivors are empowered to be active participants in their wellness care through a strength-based approach. Our teams support them, believe them and respect their decisions.
We understand the physical and psychological impacts of trauma, and apply techniques, policies and services congruent with those needs and each survivor’s unique lived experiences.
Survivors are supported by a team of professionals, including Survivor-Mentors, Regional Advocates, Victim Service Coordinators, and Clinicians who work together to create appropriate, individualized wellness plans.
Funding Follows the Victim
With this highly mobile population, our teams are often able to continue to serve survivors as they move throughout many Florida regions.
This is the “special sauce” of our model. As the backbone, Voices for Florida mobilizes resources to plug service gaps, advances training and education and monitors evaluation and outcome measures to ensure successful outcomes for survivors.

A Top Need for Victims is Housing
As the backbone organization for Open Doors, Voices is working hard to fulfill this need. Survivors served through Open Doors will soon have access to transitional housing assistance, thanks to a three-year grant from the U.S Department of Justice.
