OYS Champions: Gracehaven
COLUMBUS, Ohio (WSYX/WTTE) —
Each week we feature regular folks in our community doing extraordinary things! This week’s On Your Side Champions are the folks at Gracehaven.
It’s a program that helps the some of the most vulnerable victims in our communities, kids being trafficked for sex. In Ohio, about 1,100 minors become sex trafficking victims each year, and in Franklin county alone over 100 will be reported this year.
Gracehaven is not only helping the survivors recover and move on with their lives, but they have outreach programs to help catch kids, who are vulnerable to being groomed by traffickers, before they fall victim.
