“When I first began learning about sex trafficking, what hit me the hardest was that, it could have been me! As a once vulnerable teenager, I’ve made it my mission to mentor youth girls in the St. Cloud Community and make sure that these girls and my four boys know how valued they are! I am thrilled that Terebinth Refuge is in our community to help give trafficked women the hope and healing they will need!”
— Katie H. Rice, MN
