In August, an FBI bust of underage sex-trafficking in the United States made news headlines. The bust rescued 105 sexually exploited children. Most of these kids come from broken homes, ones that include neglect and abuse and to which they cannot safely return. And unfortunately, due to a shortage of residential programs for these youth, many of them end up incarcerated.

Resilience Rising is a new program in Colorado created specifically for this population. We are a ten-bed program, accommodating eight teenage girls and two infants/toddlers. Please join us in the fight against child sexual exploitation, and help us provide a safe home for these girls, one that promotes healing and empowerment. (http://www.resilience-rising.org)
