StreetLightUSA is a non-profit organization dedicated to the care and healing of girls 11-17 who have been held in hostage-like situations and have been forced to prostitute their bodies. Often, they service 10 or more customers each night, and are subjected to every kind of brutal treatment imaginable. There are very few places these children can go for safety, medical care, education, training in life skills, and resources for turning their lives around. StreetLightUSA offers all of this in their residential facility, the only such comprehensive service in Arizona, and one of a handful of similar centers across the country.
Make a date with your favorite mom to attend one of these events, and be a blessing to the girls who may need a caring place to heal from the trauma of sex trafficking.
