Elite is powered by exceptional leaders coming together to help put an end to Human Sex Trafficking, in all its ugly forms, in our communities. Elite provides transformational education, through empowerment to promote the evolution of the survivor to become a thriving-leader, to find their voice, and be a Warrior of Change.

Victims of modern day slavery share points of commonality. These include childhood history of abuse, neglect, a lack of self-esteem and limited or no family/community ties that support and promote vocational restoration for long-term self-sustainability.

Elite provides a unique entry point, for young adult survivors, who find themselves ineligible for community-based funded services. Our clients want and are committed to finding and creating their life and vocational path. To meet this need, Elite offers access to gap advocacy and mental health services, Genotype Change Therapy (GCT) Certified Life Coaching (Trauma & Culturally-informed), Professional Mentorship and supported employment provided through business collaborations, and community-partnerships for real-world experience.

The evolution of the survivor is not a theory, its proven science. Elite Foundation has a vision to provide A Future for Every Survivor. The story of each survivor has not yet been told, their unique impact on the world will change lives.
