THE STORY:

Kristen Harness wrote -

According to Jefferson County and Arapahoe County social services, there are young girls in Denver that will not be alive in 1 year if there isn’t an intervention of safe housing and services for them. What would be causing their death, sex trafficking. Right now in Denver there are 300 identified pimps and those pimps have multiple young girls that they are exploiting and trafficking. Denver pimps can make $100,000 a year off exploiting just one minor. The common age of entry into the commercial sex industry is 12 years old nationwide and 90% of these victims have a past history of sexual abuse. These are not statistics from overseas, but right here in our own communities. Extended Hands of Hope’s mission is to offer safe housing and supportive services to teen girls ages 12-17 that are survivors of sex trafficking. There is currently no home open specifically for this population and these girls are being taken to jail or detention centers after rescue. We currently work with young survivors in our mentoring program and are working on licensing Avanti House in order to open our doors and welcome in girls by the end of the year. Avanti House is a safe home for these girls and will offer an environment that highlights their strengths, encourages their dreams, and supports their recover. We need on-going support to run and manage a 24/7 home for these girls. The goal is that they will begin to see that they do not deserve to be abused or exploited, but they were made with a purpose We need your financial support to begin hiring the 8 qualified staff members to help these girls within Avanti House.
