- The average age a teen enters the sex trade in the U.S. is 12-14 years old.
- Many victims are runaway girls who were sexually abused as children.
- The I-94 corridor is used as a circuit used by traffickers to transport victims from Detroit to Chicago and Milwaukee as well as many points in between.
- The Michigan Human Trafficking Task Force said modern-day slavery is the third-largest criminal enterprise in the world, surpassed only by the sale of drugs and guns.
- Once rescued by law enforcement, these victims are very likely to wind up back into this life because there is no place for them to go for rehabilitation and emotional support.
We want to create the opportunity for safe housing, emotional support and a chance for a changed life in a new environment to learn new life skills away from this trade.
