Why The Refuge Ranch is our charity of choice:
Child sex trafficking is the fastest growing crime in the world.
In the U.S. there was an 846% increase in reported child sex trafficking cases from 2010 to 2015.
There are currently 79,000 young adults and minors who have been sex trafficked in Texas.
Texas has the second most reported number of child sex trafficking cases in the U.S.
There are less than 600 beds available nationwide for child sex trafficking survivors, but we have over 13,000 animal shelters.
Prior to the opening of The Refuge Ranch, Texas only had 24 beds available for child survivors’ long term recovery from trauma.
