A recent study by the University of Texas indicates a high rate of trafficked youth come from impoverished areas in our local communities. These areas have a higher incident of youth that have experienced abuse in their homes as well as general brokenness within their circle of family relationships. Fatherless families, addictions within the family, higher rates of unemployment, and higher rates of crime all contribute to at-risk and marginalized population in these areas. These all create a sense of hopelessness, low self-esteem, shame, and guilt which all result in unhealthy relationships and a higher risk of being trafficked or creating a trafficker. We want to break this cycle.
