Every 2.5 minutes.
100,000 per year.
20 kids per year on average in Oklahoma with only 15 beds.
Our children are being trafficked. They are sexually exploited, raped and traumatized daily. The headlines blare it: teachers having sex with their students, massage parlors that are fronts for prostitution, young girls being lured into the sex trade by men on social media. These are OUR children and they need YOUR help.
In only 2 years, RISE has served 22 girls and has been on wait list status 4 TIMES, having to turn girls away, because we were too full.
It's time... we NEED more beds. Together, as a state, as a community, we MUST do better for OUR kids.
Please consider joining as a partner with us in our capital campaign, Expanding Freedom, so that we can build an addition that would give RISE 10 beds. This expansion is a $400,000 investment into our current property and a priceless investment in our children. It would be an honor to have you as a donor for this project for 2020.
As a long term residence in Muskogee for adolescent girls who have been victims of sex trafficking or commercial sexual exploitation, RISE has seen girls achieve their GED, overcome 2 year academic deficits to graduate on time, joint the United States military, improve relationships with their families and become clean from illegal drug use, all while escaping their life of the sex trade.
With YOUR contribution, our Expanding Freedom campaign will allow us to continue to offer our services to even more young ladies from Oklahoma and surrounding states. YOUR support means more beds, more life change and more saving lives for years to come.
