Washington, D.C. is the highest ranked city in calls to the trafficking hotline per capita.
Every school in Fairfax County, including elementary and middle schools, has had a reported victim of sex trafficking.
Only 1% of victims are ever identified and rescued.
Of that 1%, up to 80% are often re-trafficked because they have no safe place to go to.
Currently, there are no safe homes for survivors of trafficking in Northern Virginia.
That is why we are working on establishing Libertas Home--to fill that gap and to create a safe and nurturing home for minor survivors of commercial sexual exploitation. We intend to provide group therapy, equine therapy, art therapy, music therapy, and many other outlets to enable them to heal from the trauma they have experienced. Libertas Home will provide counselors to provide them with holistic healing, and teachers to help them gain their education. We believe in resilience, hope, and compassion, and it is our goal to give them a chance at a new life.
If you are in immediate need, please call the trafficking hotline
1.888.373.7888, or text the hotline at 233733. It is open 24/7 and is 100% confidential. If you are in immediate danger, please call 911.
