Did you know?  In 2016, authorities identified nine children from Hamilton County, all girls who were purchased by adult buyers for sex, often in hotels in the Castleton area. The youngest victim was 11 years old. (T.Swarens, IndyStar.com)

Vulnerable youth are often targeted by traffickers an exploiters. Those most highly at risk include children in the foster system, runaways, victims of physical and sexual abuse, those with social deficits, and who come from homes marked by instability. Exploiters seek them out and fill emotional voids by playing the role of the absentee parent or a loyal boyfriend. Trauma bonding takes place quickly as youth latch on to the hope of unconditional love and acceptance. Desperate to maintain that connection, they are often willing to comply with anything that is asked of them. When they refuse, force and violence come into play. Please join us for this important event
