Our Vision

We envision a world that is aware of sexual abuse and exploitation and will not tolerate it. We believe we can create a world where sexually abused and exploited people receive safe, long-term housing and trauma-informed care in an environment where they experience restoration and unconditional love.

Our Mission

The Poiema Foundation educates the public and raises awareness in order to prevent sexual abuse, sex trafficking, and other methods of sexual exploitation. We also facilitate the restoration journey of survivors by providing for their physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual needs.
