In the past few years, there has been so much talk about human and sex trafficking, great awareness has been raised on the issue, but it seems like a problem that only exists in foreign countries and that there is not much that we can do here to combat it. Do you know that the Sacramento area is one of the worst in the US for Sex Trafficking? Most of the girls that end up in these situations come from the foster care system.
For the past 16 years, The Glass Slipper has stepped into this space saying “we believe the best way to end sexual exploitation is to never let it start”. Founded by Jackie Guzman, the whole heart behind this organization is to “continue to seek innovative ways to reach and strengthen more girls” in order that these girls, who are in the foster care system, can discover their self-worth and take necessary steps towards independent living.
Completely volunteer run and operated, the Glass Slipper is based out of their hospitality house in Citrus Heights, California. Come on the walk-through that Jackie Guzman gave us of their place.
