More than 100,000 American children are at risk for trafficking into the sex industry.
U.S. Department of State, November 2009
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has identified the Washington, DC area as one of the 14 major sex trafficking centers in the U.S. YFT is the only facility in Virginia and in the mid-Atlantic region that works to offer safe and secure residential and specialized recovery service for girls ages 12 to 17 who have been sexually exploited/sex trafficked. YFT professionals help girls who are victims of sexual abuse and trafficking to regain their lives through individual service plans that set weekly priorities and goals for each girl in their education, residence, counseling/therapy, supervision and safety, self-reliance and relationships.
More than 25 girls have been reached through YFT since its “Girls on a Journey” began in 2008. Personalized staff advocates help victims improve their self esteem, learn age appropriate social skills and work through their individual needs.
