Modern Day Slavery
To look at Jenna, you see a young woman, a young mom, playing with her son and enjoying life. And all of those details are true. But behind her smile, Jenna revealed overcoming a very traumatic time in her life. “When I first came to Jessie’s Place, I had been the victim of human trafficking,” Jenna shared with us.
“We were moved around a lot.” (Constant moving is a tactic of traffickers, so their victims don’t know where they are or who to reach our to for help.) “I only saw my son for about an hour a day,” Jenna said. But after breaking free from the modern-day bondage, Jenna was eager for a second chance at life. “I wanted to give myself and my son a better life,” she said.
