Frequently Asked Questions

Is Human Trafficking Really an issue in Texas?

Yes. According to a 2016 University of Texas study, an estimated 79,000 minors and youth are victims of sex trafficking in Texas each year.

How many homes do you currently have for survivors?

We are constantly growing, but at the moment we have 7 homes. 

Is sex trafficking different from prostitution?

We don’t like to differentiate between the two. When statistics show that the majority of women in prostitution were forced, coerced, or lured before the age of 18, it’s difficult to ever want to make the assumption that a woman chose the life for herself. Instead, it is safer to assume that women are trafficked into prostitution.  We do recognize that some may choose this lifestyle for themselves, but we are more interested in protecting the majority, which were not given the ability to make a choice.
