The EMPOWER program provides CASA volunteers to court-involved youth in DC who are suspected or confirmed survivors of human trafficking, sexual abuse, and other forms of sexual violence. EMPOWER's CASA volunteers receive extensive and specialized training in human trafficking and sex crimes to prepare them in providing high-quality advocacy on these cases.


EMPOWER aims to create a strong alliance across all agencies that serves, protects, and seeks to understand and provide youth with specialized advocacy and empowerment. EMPOWER's CASA volunteers and staff also aim to empower the entire team so that the momentum in seeking justice is not compromised.
