Safe house offers hope for victims of sex-trafficking

There’s a safe house in west-central Montana, where young women, victims of sex trafficking, have a place to go where they will be protected, loved, and rehabilitated.

One of those women is “Adrianne,” who said, “It’s amazing. It’s a wonderful thing. Firstly, like two months ago, I didn’t know I was going to be alive. Two months ago, I didn’t know I was going to have a family.”

Rick and Pat are that family unlike any she has known.

Adrianne was sexually abused from an early age by her own adoptive family and sold as a sex slave at age 11.

Rick and Pat took her in just a few months ago, becoming a foster family to her and other young women in the home who have experienced the pain, humiliation, and dehumanization that is sex trafficking.

Rick said, “I think the biggest thing is helping them realize their value.”
