  • Into the Light, a non-profit organization located in Mountain Home, provides refuge, support and rehabilitation to underage female victims of human sex trafficking.

 

  • Into the Light brings awareness and education to the issue of human sex trafficking in our country and the region.

 

  • It is estimated that 90 percent of the female victims of human sex trafficking have been part of the foster care system.

 

  • The US Department of Homeland Security describes human trafficking as modern-day slavery using force, fraud or coercion to obtain labor or commercial sex, primarily with females and males under the age of 18.

 

  • A goal of Into the Light is to establish a residential group home to restore and rehabilitate girls between 12 and 17 years of age who have been victims of human sex trafficking.
