My Refuge house
Couture Salon & Spa is a proud partner of My Refuge House and we are fighting to help young girls who have fallen victims of human trafficking and sexual abuse. Each year we host a fundraiser to build awareness and to give back to young girls in need to help give them a second chance at life and to regain hope and healing.
My Refuge House (MRH) is a ministry that provides a safe home to empower and restore survivors of commercial sexual exploitation (CSE) and abuse.
A Modern Take on Commercial Sexual Exploitation
In an increasingly globalized world, ideas, culture, and commodities are easily accessible with just a click of a button or via a short plane ride. With this increased interconnectedness also comes the relative ease of the movement of people, sexual predators and victims alike, across international borders. Nowadays, there is no region in the world untainted by some type of commercial sexual exploitation. According to the Women’s Support Project, commercial sexual exploitation takes on many forms such as brothels, sex trafficking, mail order brides, sex tourism, pornography, prostitution, stripping, lap dancing, and phone sex companies. More recently, this crime has become more and more invisible as perpetrators use the Internet and mobile phones to plan and to exploit victims in both in-person and online encounters. Cybersex trafficking is a serious and emerging crime encouraged by the Internet’s affordability, accessibility and anonymity.
