Service Details

Description

Regional navigators are part of the Minnesota Safe Harbor program which views youth who engage in prostitution as victims and survivors, not criminals. Navigators are the main point of contact for sexually exploited youth and concerned agencies, and are responsible for connecting youth with supportive services and housing. The participants in Safe Harbor programs are treated with dignity and respect and recognize their right to make their own choices.


Navigators also serve as regional experts on sexually exploited youth. All members of the community are encouraged to contact the navigator when working with a young person who may be sexually exploited. Navigators can refer professionals to trainings about sexual exploitation of youth and the supportive programs that are available. Safe Harbor Regional Navigators follow the No Wrong Door approach.
