The new facility will open in the spring as the first facility of its kind in the D.C. region, and has been prepared with a lot of volunteer help from members of an area church. The exact location of the facility is maintained as a secret in defense of the girls. There are an estimated 100,000 teen victims of trafficking in the U.S. every year, and so far only 100 beds to offer in-residence services to address their traumas. (Photo: News-Press)
