Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking in Juvenile Detention Facilities

More to come…

 

We were so Blessed to be able to deliver Hope to one of our precious ‘rescued’ ones as she turned 18 in jail, awaiting her trafficking charges to be expunged under Florida’s new Safe Harbor Law!

Our January Outreach brought forth two new survivors to our program ages 14 & 15. Please pray for these special young ones, as we have had the privilege and honor to pray with them and build them up. We are now ministering to the parents of one of them.

A recent outreach surveyed: Out of all female juveniles incarcerated, 20% had been a victim of some form of domestic minor sex trafficking and were never previously reported or uncovered.

Once I was afraid to even open my mouth, not once caring that my life was going south, and when I finally did, all I felt was pain. I never understood how much he would gain. Using me for a puppet in his sick little game. I never understood that my life wouldn’t be the same, until someone told me there was Hope for me, something I can finally see. It helps to know I’m not alone, that someone out there has been like me, almost to their breaking point afraid to make a sound. But to see them get back up well, to most that would astound. Though to me it seemed impossible until someone told me there was hope for me No matter where I am, some may see, some may not; it all depends on where you stand.
