Onyx offers support services to youth who are or have been sexually exploited. This is a voluntary program that assists male, female and trans clients that are 18 years of age and under, with a wide variety of support services available: counselling, 1-on-1 support, advocacy, financial assistance (food, clothing, bus pass, etc.) housing and connection to community resources.
Service plans are put into place during initial intake and consultation with the client. Coordination of services range from formal (counselling, detox, school, one-to-one support) to informal (recreation, clothing, bus pass). Referrals can come from the community; Self-referrals are also okay.
