Child Sex Trafficking
It’s a horrific crime, and one that is growing rapidly every year. A common misconception is that it’s chiefly a problem in third world countries, or possibly just the inner city. But the truth is, it’s happening somewhere very close to you. In rural America, in small towns, maybe even your neighborhood.
New Hope is building a program of restoration for victims of child sex trafficking, to be delivered within a safe, stable home. The program is individualized to meet the specific needs of each girl and features current best practices in the treatment of trauma survivors. The end goal is always complete restoration to a life that includes all the possibilities the girl might choose for herself including family, career, education, and a fulfilling place in community.
