“It is my privilege to play a part in combating the atrocity of human trafficking. The cycle that these young victims often find themselves in provides little hope for a normal existence. The collaborative efforts of law enforcement, prosecutors, and community-based organizations shed light on this crisis and seek justice for its victims. Courage House breaks the cycle and gives victims an opportunity for a future. They are an effective and indispensable partner in this fight.”

“The opening of Courage House will provide young women with a sanctuary from predators who would take advantage of them, give them the resources to escape the streets and provide an atmosphere of compassion and support. I encourage others to replicate this model as we continue the fight to apprehend perpetrators of sex crimes, and help these vulnerable young women get off of the streets and out of harm’s way.”
