Did you know? 
In Dallas, 80% of trafficked teens had run away from troubled, fatherless homes. More than 93% had been sexually abused, 96% physically abused and 87% had been abandoned.

Family risk factors included very high levels of parent physical and sexual abuse, divorce and single parent homes. *Letot Center

Second Chance Jobs

Because 13 is the average age an American girl enters the sex trade*, job skills training, professional mentorship and conventional employment are vital to a protégé becoming self-sufficient. Congratulations to the 32 proteges who, since January 2014, are pursuing education or have secured internships or employment.

Do you know of a company who would like to offer a job or internship to a NFNL protégé?  If you would like to open the door to a protege’s future, please contact Kelly at kcruse@newfriendsnewlife.org.
