Our children are drowning.
Will you be their lifeline?
100,000 children in the US are victims of commercial sexual exploitation each year.
Contrary to popular belief, most of these children were not kidnapped and forced into a life of abuse.
This is the
typical cycle of
of sex trafficking victims spent time in the child welfare system.
of exploited youth have experienced ongoing abuse for over 2 years prior to a referral for child welfare services.
They are the children we see every day.
Abused children are vulnerable to sex trafficking.
But together, we can Turn the Tide.
Turn the Tide is a Building 22 initiative to advocate for a strengthened child welfare system so that these children have a fighting chance against sexual exploitation.
We support foster care education and recruiting, and partner agencies who are actively engaged in the fight for this vulnerable population.
Turn the Tide events offer:
- Education on the current state of sex trafficking and foster care in TX and nationally
- Speakers from leaders in the trafficking and foster care fields
- On site clothing and food donation opportunities supporting partner agencies
