We are dedicated to preventing child exploitation by educating, equipping and empowering mothers and daughters.
Founded in 2014, The Chosen Ones, Inc emerged from a mother and daughter with a collective concern to address child exploitation by focusing on the pivotal role of family units. It began as a grassroots movement championing education, empowerment, and awareness among mothers and daughters to create a protective shield against exploitation. Over the years, The Chosen Ones has reached hundreds of families through educational workshops, community engagement programs, and empowerment initiatives. Our programs have resulted in increased awareness, improved communication within families, and a notable reduction in vulnerability to exploitation among the communities we serve.
Age has been identified as a primary risk factor because pre-teen and adolescent girls are often more susceptible to the calculated tactics used by traffickers and pimps. Other main risk factors that have been identified include:
Each year, there are approximately 1.7 million runaway/throwaway episodes in the U.S., and about 90% of runaways become involved in the sex trade industry (Priebe & Suhr, 2005).
Victims who have experienced emotional and psychological difficulties are at a greater risk for being sexually exploited (Priebe & Suhr, 2005). These girls often experience isolation from peers and have problems in school (Priebe & Suhr, 2005).
Research has demonstrated that negative home life experiences are a significant predictor for prostitution (Priebe & Suhr, 2005). Conflict in the home can be caused by parental neglect, physical and/or sexual abuse, parental drug use, housing instability, and violence (Priebe & Suhr, 2005).
Children who have been sexually abused are 28 times more likely to be arrested for prostitution at some point in their lives (Smith, et al., 2009).
