Mothers are known as the face of love for their offspring. When children have gone missing or have taken a bad turn in life, many moms will continue to grieve and agonize until everything is set right once again. For the hundreds of thousands of children who have been caught up in sex trafficking, the setting right process may only come about if the girl or boy is pulled out of the situation through intervention of law enforcement and placement in a healing environment.
Troy Hailpern of Elevate Coffee Company in Phoenix wants to be part of the healing process. A special Mother’s Day Brunch has been set up as a fundraiser for StreetLightUSA, one of the few comprehensive residential treatment centers in the country for girls who have been rescued from sexual exploitation. Families can honor their moms and provide hope for some of the girls who need a safe haven of love and support. Each child enslaved in commercial sexual abuse is somebody’s daughter or son.
