Mission

The Young Women’s Freedom Center was founded in 1993 to empower and inspire cis and trans young women, trans young men, and gender-expansive young people who have been disproportionately impacted by incarceration, racist and sexist policies, the juvenile and criminal justice systems, and/or the underground street economy, to create positive change in their lives and communities. YWFC meets people where they are at: on the streets, in jails and detention centers, and in the neighborhoods and communities where we/ they live. We create economic and leadership opportunities through internships, employment, and engagement in advocacy and organizing. Together, we build our personal and collective power, heal from trauma, advocate on behalf of ourselves and each other, and gain access to ed

Peer-based Outreach, Advocacy and Crisis Intervention

Peer advocates have been the most successful at finding and engaging the young people in YWFC programming through peer-to-peer referrals, community and street outreach. Once engaged, with rare exception, crisis response and stabilization support is the priority, including addressing immediate safety needs, safety planning, referrals and accompaniment to emergency services, and temporary safe housing. Our crisis intervention includes picking them up any time of night when asked.
