High-Risk & Trafficked Teen Girls Program
The Dallas Police Department handles 1100 cases of trafficked teens each year. NFNL responded to the need for services for these young victims by developing the NFNL High-Risk & Trafficked Teen Girls Program. This program offers sexual abuse recovery groups for adolescent girls within Letot Girls’ Center and the Dr. Jerome McNeil, Jr. Detention Center. Girls, ages 12 to 17, learn how to define, recognize, and ultimately recover from abuse. The initiative is an intervention and prevention effort to help girls avoid a lifetime of exploitation as a human trafficking victim. See a video testimonial here.
After her experience of abuse, and then the recovery she gained through the High-Risk & Trafficked Teen Girls Program, Briana wants to get this message out about at risk and sex trafficked girls: “We are not bad. We went through certain things to make us who we are and we just need help to get back on the right track.” For the full story, see our 2013 annual report.
