About the Program

The Dee Kennedy Project (DKP) helps justice-involved adults find supportive pathways to exit commercial sexual exploitation (CSE). The DKP provides a variety of services—from offering a supportive ear, to speaking with a peer advocate and recovery coach, to helping individuals to achieve short-and long-term goals at their own pace.  The DKP offers advocacy, peer support, connection to social and clinical services, and interdisciplinary collaboration to best serve and assist survivors of CSE as they navigate the criminal justice system.

The framework for the DKP is to provide trauma-informed and client-centered interventions provided by a Peer Advocate/Recovery Coach working with North Suffolk and a supporting team. 

The DKP team also aims to educate court staff, attorneys, and service providers on best practices in understanding Commercial Sexual Exploitation, and working with and representing this population in Boston Courts and available resources.
