About Healing Action

Healing Action Network partners with survivors and the community to end commercial sexual exploitation. We do this through community awareness, client advocacy, and a comprehensive array of services. We fulfill our mission through three distinct programs.

  1. Holistic Safety – We provide trauma recovery services that include intensive service management, trauma therapy, individual and group peer support services, drop-in support center, and psychoeducation & trauma groups to adults who have experienced commercial sexual exploitation including, but not limited to, sex trafficking, prostitution, stripping, escorting, pornography, and survival sex.
  2. Coalition Against Trafficking & Exploitation (CATE) – CATE is a statewide coalition to prevent and respond to human trafficking and exploitation. Primary activities include workgroups, policy advocacy, research & data collection, and standards of care.
  3. Volunteer Service Link – Program is designed to build the capacity of our community partners, increase identification of human trafficking victims, develop efficient data collection methods, and develop a diverse pool of trafficking trained community members across Missouri. We connect volunteers to Missouri victim service organizations.
