Found in a hotel room, barely awake after a nightmare, a place you never thought you’d be. Someone else is there, offering you “help.” Right — because people around here are so “helpful.”
To reach a child is no small task, especially when you’re up against the walls and barriers that come with traumatic experiences.
When a child is being exploited, working to secure the immediate safety of that child is a delicate moment. They’re scared, they’re unsure if they should trust authorities, and their inclination is often to run. Whether they run or stay, there are some long days ahead.
In the immediate moments after children who are being exploited have been identified, they need a range of resources.
Love146 is working to provide some of these resources through Rapid Response Backpacks filled with a variety of items that will help meet the immediate needs while also offering children comfort and support.
Through our partnership with state child welfare agencies, Love146 has begun to provide Rapid Response Backpacks to suspected victims of child trafficking.
These backpacks will help us ensure that every identified child is provided the information and resources that can help them with what they need today and prepare them to receive help tomorrow.
