Rachel (not her real name to protect her freedom) is almost 20 years old, still young in so many ways; but her life experiences have already taken her down a dark path of sexual abuse.
When she was only 14 years old, her parents, addicted to drugs, sold her to support their drug habit. She’s been sold as part of sex trafficking too many times to count.
In spite of the constant threat by her pimp to harm her if she ever dared to run away, she took a chance and told a friend she wanted out. They contacted the authorities, who brought Rachel to DaySpring Villa.
Within the safety of our shelter, Rachel found the suppport, strength, and faith to rebuild her life. Today, she is free from the only life she’s ever known of control and abuse.
DaySpring Villa is a safe haven for women like Rachel who are victims of human sex trafficking and need a safe place to heal.
