When 17-year-old Ariana was offered a sober ride to the next party, she did not know her attempt to get a safe ride could lead to being trafficked. She got in the car with someone she had just met and found herself in a nightmare.
“He drove me to Dallas, he put me in hotel rooms… he sent men in and out, then he would come back to get all the money…”
But Ariana bravely managed to escape and went to a nearby hospital where the police were called. She was connected to Traffic 911, who safely transported her to Bochy’s Place safe house.
“Bochy’s Place has given me a safe environment to find myself again…. take back my future.”
