Last year, North Texas Giving Day donations to New Friends New Life helped to empower 792 teen girls, women and their children. Jackie was one of those 792.
Sexually abused by her mom’s boyfriends at an early age, Jackie ran away from home as soon as she possibly could. She ran straight into the arms of her next abuser – disguised as a boyfriend. By the time Jackie was 15 years old, she was a domestic trafficking victim. She became a new mom at the age of 17, and earned money through the sex industry so she could pay the bills and feed her child.
Desperate for a new start, Jackie turned to New Friends New Life and began attending weekly support groups that included relationship building, life skills training, and Bible-based curriculum for formally trafficked or exploited women. She secured a ‘Second Chance Job’ and is now a full-time employee with a 401k, and is also a proud homeowner. Most importantly, she says that with the help of New Friends New Life, ‘I am the mother I always dreamed to have and be.’
