SPHÈRES provides targeted services on an integrated continuum to adolescents and young adults by offering them the following:

  • Personalized follow-up
  • Support for urgent and safety needs
  • Guidance and referrals to specialized resources
  • Positive activities and experiences
  • Support for the parents of the project participants

To the professionals stakeholders working with clients who are victims of sexual exploitation, SPHÈRES can provide the following:

SPHÈRES is a pilot project that may lead to a proposal in the coming years to reorganize specific services to both minors and adults who are victims of sexual exploitation.
