The Teen Project

The Teen Project (TTP) is a nonprofit serving at-risk, homeless, and sex-trafficked young women, ages 15-25, many from foster care. It offers free treatment and transitional housing for clients. Founded in 2007, TTP focuses on sobriety, education, and mentoring.

Clearinghouse CDFI financed a $3.28MM loan for TTP to acquire five secluded, single-family residences, expanding services in Southern CA.

This project will create homes for 30 low-income, homeless women—a sanctuary offering an independent and service-enriched living environment and a new chance at life. TTP has helped more than 900 young women find safety and sobriety. It is the only center in Southern CA that combines a full continuum of treatment and vocational training specifically for young women in need.

“Clearinghouse CDFI, you supported us when we launched our charity 10 years ago. Because of you, we are now 126 beds strong. This property acquisition for victims of human trafficking was more than we ever imagined possible. Thank you for believing in us and saving so many lives. We are forever grateful.”
