Community Against Sexual Harm (CASH) is a non-profit organization that not only provides assistance for victims of sexual exploitation, sex trafficking and prostitution, but also offers hope for the victims’ futures. CASH is the only agency whose mission is to serve adult victims of sexual exploitation in Sacramento. CASH staff (many of whom are former sex industry workers themselves) and volunteers provide, amongst other services, outreach, peer counseling, support groups, food, clothing, and housing assistance.
In addition to helping former victims, CASH provides information and training to community groups and other professionals about sexual exploitation, a topic not necessarily easy to talk about, but extremely prevalent, unfortunately, in the community. While CASH receives ongoing financial support from several business associations, foundations, churches, and generous individuals, the organization could not sustain itself without benefit events and the generosity of the community.
