Hepzibah House, partnering with Rescue Upstream and Life of Freedom Center, is starting a phone bank for victims trapped in commercial sexual exploitation. For more information on this opportunity, come to the Volunteer Training,
January 24th, 4 to 6pm!!  
      The sad fact is that younger girls (and boys) bring more money in the sex trafficking world. Traffickers, in response to this marketing reality, target youth - who typically have significant risk factors:
      * Often naive.
      * Too trusting.

      * Experiencing conflict with parents as they transition from childhood to teen and young adult.
      * Shifting from family focus to friends and connections with the larger community. 

      Chosen shares two true stories of teenage girls lured into trafficking. Brianna, a high school senior on the honor-roll, worked at a local cafe. Her trafficker met her here and began to strategically groom her for his designs by befriending her, giving her attention, purchasing small gifts for her. Lacy was only thirteen. She was a community volunteer and very active in her church youth group. 
      Both these girls were "chosen" by their traffickers, who then began to manipulate them with the goal of commercial sexual exploitation. The film, created as a awareness and training resource identifies the warning signs to prepare young people to avoid these traps and to be able to effectively watch out for their friends. 

Thanks again for your interest in 
Hepzibah House 
and what is perhaps the foremost justice issue of our time: 
Human Trafficking 
and the restoration of individual lives 
impacted by this horror.
 
Sincerely,
