Human trafficking is on the rise and San Diego is a primary target for child trafficking. More girls are trafficked for sexual exploitation in the United States than ever before. As these girls are being rescued, they need a safe home and resources to move forward in their lives.
Half of the trafficked victims are under the age of 16. Human trafficking is the second most profitable underground industry after drug trafficking. In San Diego County alone, the human trafficking trade makes up over $800 million in profit each year and it’s continuously growing.
GRACE has partnered with Saved In America to help fight child trafficking – they rescue the girls and we provide their rehabilitation. Rehabilitation is an integral part of keeping these girls from returning to the streets. We ask for your support as we raise funds and awareness to build a safe house for these girls in Southern California.
G.R.A.C.E. is creating a faith-based home for young women to thrive. Providing a safe house, therapeutic resources, education, life-skills training, and love to girls ages 12-17 rescued from child trafficking. Showing God’s grace through kindness, compassion, and understanding.
