In 1979, Pennsylvania Judges sent the first PA youth to Arizona to join the VisionQuest Wagon Train. VisionQuest then made its way to Pennsylvania from Arizona in 1980 when PA boys and girls traveled over 2,000 miles on the Wagon Train. That same year, VisionQuest opened its first Pennsylvania residential program in Franklin and its first community-based HomeQuest program in Erie.
The VisionQuest Safe House serves girls ages 13 -18, who have been identified as a risk to human trafficking, are survivors of human trafficking, victims of sexual trauma or who have displayed high risk sexual behavior. The Program Description describes the program and services offered. Please send referral information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
