What a year! A pandemic, wild fires, ice storms, flooding, another wild fire, a pig and 5 goats. We are rapidly approaching our 1 year anniversary at Anisa's Place AND our 9th Annual Gala & Online Auction! Is it awesome? Yes it is. We've seen amazing resilience from our youth, absolute dedication from our staff, and freaking awesome support from YOU! Please consider joining our mailing list and follow us on social media to stay up-to-date on everything that is happening.

Who We Are AND What We Do
A Village for One is a Portland based not-for-profit organization developed to serve children who have experienced commercial sexual exploitation. An astounding number of youth in the Portland and surrounding areas have experienced this global crime against children.
Our aim is to bring the talents and gifts of our community together to create an opportunity to serve each child that has been impacted by sexual exploitation in our local community. The community unites to provide youth with a home, nourishment, education, holistic healing, mentorship, service, and opportunity to grow, believe, and become their greatest potential.
In 2015, A Village for One opened our first outpatient mental health clinic location in Clackamas County, Oregon, and most recently in 2018 we opened our second outpatient clinic in Marion County, Oregon. While working to provide trauma informed mental health services to this population of youth we are also raising funds to assist in the opening of our first therapeutic residence.
In 2020, our dream of establishing a therapeutic residential program for female or female identifying youth came true with the grand opening of Anisa's Place!
Specialized Outpatient Counseling Services
A Village for One provides outpatient mental health services to youth, ages 25 and under, in both Clackamas and Marion County regardless of insurance coverage. Youth do not need to have a confirmed case of domestic sexual exploitation, but they need to be considered of high risk for this type of abuse. Feel free to submit the attached referral form or call (503) 730- 1469 for more information. Referral Form
Specialized Counseling Services for Youth in Oregon Youth Authority (OYA) Closed Custody
A Village for One has a contract with OYA to provide specialized mental health services for youth who have been identified as survivors of sexual exploitation, and are in closed custody at either Oak Creek or MacLaren Youth Correctional Facility. Referrals can be made by the youth’s probation officer to A Village for One by calling (503) 730-1469. All referrals have to be approved by the facility itself before being initiated.
Therapeutic Housing - Opened September 1, 2020
A Village for One has opened a therapeutic home for female and female-identifying survivors ages 12-18. Please refer youth through the DHS BRS process unless there are other possible funding sources for the youth outside of DHS.
Together we WILL bring our kids HOME!
