Our purpose is to empower young Boys And Girls between the ages of 10 and 24 to seek help and to provide a place of safety from their abusers.
A New Beginning for Me is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides outreach, transitional and mental health services and a sense of self-worth. We are striving to organize and prepare a new therapeutic, family home-like environment to emotionally disturbed and traumatized Children who have been sexually exploited and/or exposed to sex trafficking.
What will we do about it? We fight for their right to a safe, clean and healthy place to live, grow and heal. We offer services that would rehabilitate, educate and strengthen each person according to their individual needs and we help them to become whole, balanced and no longer afraid. We offer a choice that they thought they would never have. We offer the chance to have a future.
It happens every day in our community and we are not aware of it. So many children are forced to flee their homes even more so during the pandemic because of a homelife that is neither healthy nor safe. Their goal is to find a place where the pain will stop, but instead, so many are lured into a life that no child should ever have to live. 1 in 3 teens will be lured within 48 hours of leaving their home into commercial sexual exploitation. This does not just affect teenagers and adults, it affects newborns, infants, toddlers and people of all ages. In the United States approximately 18,000 to 20,000 American born citizens are sex trafficked every year and hundreds of billions of dollars are made by those who exploit and abuse them. America's children are screaming for help.

My name is Princess; however, my life has not been one of royalty and privilege, but of challenge, pain, trauma and triumph. I know firsthand about the feeling of powerlessness, despair and being trapped. I was unwanted, used, abused and discarded. I was a sexually assaulted foster youth in need of help. Healing does not come quickly, but it will come I purposed in my heart that I would make a difference in the lives of sexually exploited youth, to give girls the opportunity to be free from the abuse, not just physically but emotionally and mentally as well. Long after the abuse has ended, we are left with the residual of it all; in thoughts, nightmares and triggers all around in our daily lives. A New Beginning for Me is more than just a group of people who have been trained to treat trauma, we are a team who have experienced the effects of trauma personally and have triumphed over the stigma, breaking the cycle. I challenge you to get involved and stop allowing America’s children to continue to sexually be exploited. Stand united with us against the predators who sell, use and abuse these beautiful children right here in the United States. We have an obligation to protect each one. Will you accept the challenge? Will you join us or will you ignore the horrific acts against children.
Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children is real and can very close to Home A New Beginning For Me will be one of the Guiding forces to help get our Children to safety.
