Many of the women who we help are; survivors of physical and sexual abuse who have experienced homelessness or are suffering from a drug/alcohol addiction.
Sex-Trafficking in Texas
Sex trafficking still exists in America. In fact, a report from the Statewide Human Trafficking Mapping Project of Texas stated that in 2016 there were 300,000 sex trafficking victims in Texas alone. Of these, 70,000 were minors.
Drug and Alcohol Addiction
Drug and alcohol addiction is a devastating condition involving compulsive use, cravings to obtain drugs or alcohol, and dysfunctional, self-defeating behavior. It destroys the individual as well as whole families… and even kills. It opens the door to a higher risk of crime, sexual behaviors, and other demoralizing activities.
Additionally, according to a study that Chaplin Hall did in 2017, one in 10 youth will experience homelessness between the age of 18-25. Homeless youth are at a higher risk for developing a drug/alcohol addiction or falling into sex trafficking.
Women experiencing homelessness are 9 times more likely to be sexually assaulted and 12 times more likely to be physically assaulted than women not experiencing homelessness.
Hilltop Recovery Ministries was founded in 2012 in Kaufman, Texas
In 2019 HRM was relocated to Bell County, Texas
