In 2010 iSanctuary created the POST (Professional Opportunities for Survivors of Trafficking) program to meet the needs of women rescued from sex trafficking in Orange County, California. iSanctuary has worked with survivors ranging in age from 18 to 40, from various cultural backgrounds. Though iSanctuary works with women rescued in Orange County, these survivors were trafficked from all over the globe including Southeast Asia, Eastern Europe, Africa, South America, and other parts of the United States.
At the Southern California based sanctuary survivors receive education, medical care, counseling, and job training. Survivors are also taught computer skills, language lessons, and financial skills so they will be able to successfully transition from the program and be independent. The program is designed to empower women, and give them hope for the future.
