Safe Harbor

For the first time, Minnesota youth who engage in prostitution are viewed as victims and survivors, not criminals. They will be treated with dignity and respect, and directed to supportive services, and shelter and housing that meet their needs and recognize their right to make their own choices.

Sexual exploitation of youth in Minnesota is commonly overlooked, misidentified as something else and undocumented.

"In July 2014, Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), with additional financial support from the Women’s Foundation of Minnesota, contracted with Wilder Research to evaluate the implementation of the Safe Harbor Law and No Wrong Door model in adherence to Minnesota Statute 145.4718. This report summarizes the evaluation of the first year of the implementation and is the first of the biennial reports required."
