The Phoenix Charity

The Phoenix Charity For most, tattoos are a self expression, a work of art, and a choice made. Yet for some, tattoos represent the hell and the forced prisons pressed upon their minds and hearts.

They are indicative of a time when they were treated, manhandled, manipulated and abused as nothing more than objects. So for many, freeing oneself from ink produces a clean canvas, yet for the ones we help, we are literally freeing them from the proverbial chains that bind their hearts and minds. This affords them the ability to overcome barriers to a healthy mentality, to seek acceptance from themselves and from others, to re-enter society and procure employment so....after a lifetime of surviving, they can finally LIVE.

He was interested in having sexual relations with a 9 year old but wanted to make sure the CHILD and parents were comfortable with it.....

This works because there are families that actually sell their children.

It happens far more often then most think.

This is just not ok...

Police say that Nichols went on to say that he was interested in having sexual relations with the 9-year-old child, but he wanted to ensure that the child's parents and the child were "comfortable" with this. "I am hoping to meet you, get to know you, and be with u, if that's ok," he texted the young girl.

Operation Sanctuary: Newcastle child sex network convicted - BBC News

The vulnerable victims, some as young as 14, were exploited by a "cynical organisation", a court heard.

The victims were at first flattered by the attention of the men who apparently befriended them, but were then lured to parties, known as "sessions", by the promise of alcohol and drugs.

The prosecution said they became the "vulnerable victims of an organised, cynical, systematic organisation in which they were passed between their abusers."

Some spoke of being "too intoxicated" to defend themselves, while others became addicted and had to commit sexual acts in return for drugs.

The girls were aged 14 and 15.

They were given money before being returned home.

This is not a local story...but I am desperately trying to teach every parent and every teen in our community how the traffickers take advantage of our young daughters. How they abuse them and how our young girls are too afraid or shamed to speak up.

You are either part of the problem or part of the solution. There is no middle ground. Please take the time to learn the signs of sex trafficking.......

Young girls being physically, mentally and emotionally fractured. Toddlers being used for other's pleasure...

It has been a heavy month for The Phoenix. We have worked with rape victims, we have worked with small children under the age of 5 that are far too young for the things their eyes have seen. We have met a mother that is struggling with the loss of her daughter, lost to the world of trafficking. We have worked with a young mother, that has escaped the world of abuse and is fighting to rebuild herself enough to care for her children in the manner they need. We have watched social media act as the medium for trickery and abuse. We are working with a young lady that has reached out to us for assistance from several states away.....

None of it has brought overwhelming sadness to us that one young woman's case has. Such despair, such lack of hope, such fractured spirit. To be abused by family, to be forced to keep quiet by family, to be physically, mentally and spiritually destroyed. Such pain....I am asking for your prayers for this young woman, she sorely needs them.

For those that support our work, we have done a little over $24,000 in services. Truly a busy month!

Remember to be kind and hug your loved ones today....

Ten little ones will never be the same. When it comes to sexual exploitation of any kind, most parents assume their children will tell them. They DON'T. They feel shame and responsibility and guilt. They have done nothing wrong, but they do not have the tools to deal with such abuse. Regular family council and one and one with our young ones can open a door of safety and the ability to speak of such things when needed. May every child feel like they have someone to turn to......

This topic is difficult to speak of with little ones.....but its so important that you do!
