Each year, across the US, Mexico, and Canada, an estimated 325,000 children are at risk of becoming victims of sexual exploitation. In the Boston area alone, hundreds of girls have been exploited in recent years.
Recent data indicates that approximately 130 girls and young women in Essex County are victims of sexual exploitation annually, with the number of youth affected likely much higher due to underreporting. Difficulty identifying, understanding, and responding to victims has led to a staggering gap in services, with more young people falling through the cracks each year.
