The Embracing Project (TEP) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization established in 2007, with its headquartered located in Las Vegas, NV. TEP has a track record of improving outcomes for sexually exploited youth and victims/survivors of violence who are involved in the juvenile justice and/or the child welfare system. We aim to prevent future gang affiliation and reduce violence and sexual exploitation through education and experiential opportunities. Our programs increase victims’ life skills, self-sufficiency, success at school and ability to recover from their trauma. We overcome family community factors that lead to youth endangerment by engaging youth in positive activities.
How We Help
Our programs increase survivors’ life skills, self-sufficiency, success at school and ability to recover from their trauma. We aim to overcome family and community factors that lead to youth endangerment, and do so by engaging youth through advocacy, public speaking, educational services, workforce skills, etiquette, leadership opportunities, humanitarian efforts and unconditional support. All of this becomes possible as youth involved with our organization are met with individual case management, direct services, and interactive social groups.
Some of these services include:
Basic Needs Assistance (food, hygiene, etc)
Programming & Humanitarian Efforts
Application for Student Financial Aid
Partaking in Child, Family, Team Meetings
Referrals for Service (i.e. Medical Care, Counseling/ Therapy)
