The purpose of the home is to provide a full continuum of care designed to develop the whole individual. Children who are human trafficked are not prostitutes and should not be incarcerated and re-victimized as such because they are victims. The average age for victims are young as 12 years old and 75 percent are under the control of a pimp. These youth require specific interventions designed for their specific victimization and traumatization, which is significant in their healing process. # # #
