Sarah’s Story

4 May

A 17- year old girl who didn’t have a great home life because her mom and her step father drank constantly paying no attention to her. One day she was walking to the store and a 30- year old man drove up beside her and told her how pretty she was. Sarah told him she just needed to walk because she was angry with her mom. He asked her if he could take her to get her nails done and she agreed. He paid right away and gave her many compliments and asked to see her again the next day. For two months they hung out together called each other their boyfriend or girlfriend. He took her out to eat and to get her nails done. One day he asked Sarah to move in with him. He told her that he could no longer make the rent payment. He wanted her to go on dates with other men and have sexual encounters. Sarah felt very nonconvertible but did it so she wouldn’t have to return home. One night she was raped on the street and immediately called the police and was taken to the hospital. The police had called an organization to come and help Sarah and she was in emergency housing an d emotional support. The organization made it where she would have a long term housing and a part time job. With in four months she was able to save enough money so that she could move in by herself. Today, she continues to live on her own and hopes to attend college and eventually start her own business.
