National Slavery/Human Trafficking Prevention Month

Often times the word trafficking conjures up images of girls, women, and men in a situation of bondage. Physically held captive and without the freedom to go where they want, and make their own choices. While that is sometimes the case, often there is a different kind of bondage not as easily seen in victims.

CF has found that girls/women that are sexually exploited often experience a dark or more deceptive lack of freedom. It is not always visible chains that they are bound by- but often bound emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually. Where girls sometimes have the "freedom" to walk around, but due to positions of power on part of the trafficker, circumstances of poverty, family & community perceptions, and other factors of deception and coercion, the girls are living in a reality in which they are very much held captive.

With your continued help, CF aftercare is seeking to obtain freedom on those levels by assisting girls in a safe, healthy, loving environment. Working together with families and community, clients in conjunction with CF caseworkers can create a care plan to help them pursue their own dreams and goals for freedom. As well as assist in the process of healing with the ultimate goal of re-integrating back into their home. This is the freedom to dream, hope, and choose the steps for their future.

With time and our continued advocacy/efforts, she will find her way to true freedom.
