Our Mission

To equip girls who have experienced child maltreatment, commercial sexual exploitation and sex trafficking to find their voices, reclaim their narratives and persist forward.

Our Vision

By addressing the systems that perpetuate victimization, POETIC is igniting a movement to reject the notion that youth can be bought and sold. We imagine a world where all children are equally valued.

At POETIC, youth are not defined by their circumstances and experiences. Instead, they are empowered to become the authors of their lives.

If you or someone you know is a victim of sex trafficking, call 888-373-7888 to contact the National Human Trafficking Hotline.

POETIC’s four-systems approach is rooted in research and directly combats the issues that perpetrate re-victimization, exploitation and trafficking of girls in Dallas.

Trauma Therapy

Every POETIC girl receives a therapist who is trained in trauma-treatment with direct access 24/7. POETIC girls participate in individual and group therapy while their parents are supported with weekly parent-led support groups and case management.

Creative Arts Studio

Through art therapy and music therapy, POETIC
girls have the opportunity to find their voices and reclaim their
narratives through creative mediums that build self-identity, self-value
and self-love.

Design Co

We believe in empowering our girls to find their unique career path through our POETIC Design Studio and POETIC storefront. POETIC girls are exposed to job opportunities that are fostering the development of the next generation of entrepreneurs, designers, accountants, and CEOs in North Texas.

POETIC School for Girls

Our on-site homeschool provides individualized education for girls to receive a high school diploma or GED. For girls attending public school, POETIC provides educational advocacy to ensure proper assessment and provision of accommodations.
