Charity's Story

“When I was 14 years old I thought I had found love. He showed me all the attention I wanted, told me I was beautiful and that he loved me. It was not long before he began selling me multiple times a night and would take all the money earned – I had nothing. I was arrested one night and brought to Place of Hope’s Hope House. What I feared to be the worst evening turned out to be God rescuing me. I spent the next year healing physically and emotionally. At Hope House I learned what true love is and my value. I was able to graduate high school at 16, testify against my traffickers and see them sent to prison! I am excited to see what the future holds for me.”
