Sunflower Home

Transitional Housing in San Antonio For Survivors of Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Youth (CSEY)

We provide transitional housing services for survivors of childhood commercial sexual exploitation who have aged out of child-serving systems. Our program has a trauma-informed, evidence-based, and holistic approach to address all needs of our residents. By providing safe transitional housing we create a space where healing can begin.

A Place to Find Support

Sunflower Home is an 8-bed, residential program and is the first of its kind. YCOT provides the only transitional housing in San Antonio designed to provide trauma-informed support services exclusively to young women aged 18-22, who have experienced sexual exploitation or trafficking.

Onsite support services include specialized case management, individual and group therapy, and life skills classes. We continue to provide off-site long term case management services to former residents until they reach 24 years of age.

We're here to help, not to judge.

The Space

Sunflower Home is located on a serene campus that provides a healing therapeutic environment while fostering a sense of safety and reconnection. Our program provides specialized services and a restorative experience to our residents. With a comprehensive framework services model our team provides stability while fostering safety, healing, and a secure path to independent living.

Sunflower Home provides each resident with a safe space to start their healing journey. The journey begins at first arrival and continues each day as it brings a new opportunity to heal and grow. We understand that every resident is unique and so are their needs and goals. Our team will create an individualized plan of services designed in collaboration with residents and their assigned long-term case manager. Emphasis is placed in educational achievement, workforce re-entry, and mental health.

All youth in residency actively participate in daily structured activities. These activities include: life skills training, financial literacy classes, group therapy, wellness activities, individual counseling, and case management status meetings.
