State of Minnesota Safe Harbor Program Funds Four Agencies to Provide

Housing and Services for Sexually Exploited Youth

Four Minnesota agencies are joining together under the Minnesota Department of Human Services Safe Harbor Shelter and Housing grants to provide shelter and services for our state’s sexually exploited youth. “Safe Harbor is the most significant state investment in the country to end child sex trafficking,” said CeCe Terlouw, executive director of the Heartland Girls’ Ranch of Benson, one of the four Minnesota Safe Harbor grantees.

I am a 17 year old transgender youth. I am much more successful living on my own than with my mom, even though we still have a good relationship. I was staying in a youth shelter before I came to live here, at Lindquist.
