POETIC is an after-care program for vulnerable youth in Dallas.  We aim to breaks the cycle of re-victimization for youth who have experienced child maltreatment, commercial sexual exploitation and sex trafficking.  Our comprehensive support puts a School, Trauma Therapy Center (with 24/7 access to a therapist), Clinical Case Management and Advocacy, Creative Arts Therapy and Paid internships all under one roof.

POETIC equips girls (ages 12-18+) who have experienced child maltreatment, commercial sexual exploitation and sex trafficking to use their voices, reclaim their narratives and persist forward. We imagine a world where all girls are equally valued.

POETIC is more than an anti-trafficking agency. We are a female-empowerment agency with a five-systems approach, rooted in research, to break the cycle of re-victimization for girls.

POETIC’s Vision: we are igniting a movement to reject the notion that youth can be bought and sold. We imagine a world where all children are equally valued.
