"Human trafficking is a huge problem around the world, and Mississippi is no exception. Currently, there are no specialized places for these children to go when they are found. They often end up back on the street and back in the cycle of abuse. These victims require intense therapy and treatment that is different from what is offered in a typical group home setting. Southern Christian Services has stepped up to fill this gap in services and answer the call to serve these children. We are so grateful for their willingness to jump into this fight against human trafficking and to work with some of Mississippi's most vulnerable children."


- Lindsey Simmons, Board President, Mississippians Against Human Trafficking
