Help Us Eradicate Child Trafficking
- Over 79,000 Texas children and youth are trafficked each year for sex (according to an independent study conducted by the University of Texas in Austin, 2016).
- 1 in 4 girls will be sexually abused before their 18th birthday.
- 25% of the children that come into our care are picked up in Houston, a major HUB of trafficking in the United States.
- Out of 59,919 child victims in Texas during 2019, 47% were between the ages of 6 and 12
Join Hope Rising in continuing to support our programs which include 2 state-of-the-art Emergency Assessment and Stabilization Centers, developed and designed to provide triage care for the first 30-90 days of care upon rescue from sex trafficking and exploitation.
