National Landscape Map of Residential Shelters Serving Survivors of Exploitation

Explore the Institute’s interactive map! We actively track shelters and direct service organizations that serve survivors of sexual exploitation.


The Institute for Shelter Care conducts research related to restorative care for victims of exploitation, most often, within the context of a residential program.

While our research primarily centers on residential programs dedicated to serving sex trafficking survivors, there are commonalities in care provision. We believe that the insights gained from these contexts are applicable to the work of homeless shelters.

Upcoming Webinars

The Institute for Shelter Care invites you to take advantage of our webinar series, “Business of Ministry,” tailored specifically for faith-based nonprofits.
