Picture this: a girl, 13 or 14 or 15, sold for sex by a pimp who calls himself her boyfriend. Somehow, finally, she manages to escape. She is taken to a safe place, a sanctuary in rural Oahu where she can live and heal, her damaged body and psyche treated by an understanding team of counselors, medical professionals and teachers.
This place, called Pearl Haven, doesn’t exist yet.
But it will.
