But there is always hope. 
Want to learn more?  

Magdalene's exists today to inform the public about the reality of sex trafficking in our own community and to assist adult women survivors of sexual exploitation.

This is why...

“Within 48 hours of running away 1 out of 3 children are solicited for sex. Victims can be sold 15-40 times every 24 hours. 1 in 9 children receive online sexual solicitation.

Trauma occurs repeatedly … and includes catastrophic…and entrapping trauma.

“For these victims, complex trauma occurs repeatedly and cumulatively, usually over a period of time and often includes catastrophic, deleterious and entrapping trauma that can be persistent and devastating.”
