In November, 2019, R|H, in partnership with Missouri Baptist Children’s Home (MBCH), opened the Mabee House, serving minor survivors of human sex trafficking.
The Mabee House, located just outside of the greater Kansas City metropolitan area, serves up to 7 minor (11-17 years of age) survivors of human sex trafficking at one-time.
In the U.S., females account for 98% of the total human sex trafficking population with 50% of those being minors. With the average age of entry to sex trafficking in the U.S. being 12-13 years of age, R|H knew we needed to do something immediately for these minor survivors. With only 600 beds available nationwide to minor survivors of human sex trafficking, R|H remains committed to expanding capacities to house and serve minors, and the Mabee House is the first-step.
In addition to R|H Farms, the Mabee House will serve as a facility toward the healing and restoration of minors that may have unique mental, emotional or physical considerations, more conducive to a smaller footprint environment. Additionally, the Mabee House for minors will serve as a transition step toward placement on R|H Farms for those minors who “age out”.
