Did You Know?
Human sex trafficking is the second fastest growing criminal industry in the United States, just behind drug trafficking. Approximately half of these victims are children.
In Ohio alone, more than 3,000 minors are at-risk for sex trafficking, and more than 1,000 are actually trafficked during the course of a year. Victims come from all geographic areas and all socioeconomic levels. It's in our own backyard.
Gracehaven's programs are carefully designed to most effectively meet the needs of everyone impacted by human trafficking -- from high school students learning about it, to first responders and professionals who must interact with those who may be affected, to victims who've experienced it firsthand.
