We saved her.

Ellie is doing well

Help Rachel escape sex trafficking

We rescue girls from sex trafficking and help them begin a new life.

With your donation, we made it possible for survivors to buy winter coats this Christmas. These young girls live and go to school in a “safe home” far away from the sex traffickers who could otherwise stalk them. The safe home provides counseling, food and education. The girls still need other necessities, but even more importantly, they need to know kind-hearted people like you care about them. Here are a few of their thank you notes below:

There are men targeting young girls all over the Bay Area. The girls are often too trusting, believing the man is their boyfriend and even the most engaged parents may not realize what is going on until after tragedy strikes. Special Operations is a Public Private Partnership between the community and law enforcement that helps rescue victims and target criminals. We are a 501(c)(3) and 100% of your tax deductible donation goes directly towards keeping kids safe in the Bay Area. Please donate now.

FOUND: Pearl Montano

With your generous donations, Special Operations hired a private investigator to immediately help locate 15-year old Pearl Montano. She went missing from Santa Rosa on January 8th and was found on January 17th. Although we can not provide details of specific cases, we want our donors to know Pearl is safe

GIRLS ARE NOT FOR SALE Help Us Shut Down Illicit Massage Businesses.

Because we know you care, we’re going to tell you something a little disturbing. There are more than 9,000 illicit massage businesses (IMBs) in the United States with revenues of $2.5 billion/year. An enormous number of underage girls are forced to provide sexual services inside these businesses.

With your donation, we helped San Mateo County greatly reduce its number of IMBs. We granted money to law enforcement to purchase necessary technology to monitor IMBs and to pay trained agents overtime salaries to conduct sting operations. LET’S GET TO ZERO IMBS IN EVERY COUNTY.

“Thank you, Special Operations, for your help in shutting down IMBs.” – John Vanek, Human Trafficking Program Coordinator, San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office

A Missing Underage Girl Is Home For The Holidays

Happy Holidays!

Thanks to our generous donors, Special Operations helped give a mother the best Christmas present she could ask for: her daughter.

“Ellie” went missing last summer. Ellie was classified as a “runaway” even though her mother had reason to believe she was being sold for sex. In California, it is not a crime for a 17-year old to run away from home, so there were no Amber Alerts nor any sense of urgency from law enforcement.

Ellie’s mother was frantic. Luckily, she reached out to a local safe home who called us. We immediately hired a private investigator who was given the Power of Attorney to find Ellie. He vigorously investigated the case helping with search parties, interviewing her friends and family, working with computer crime specialists, and elevating the case within law enforcement.

About a month later, Ellie was found in a prostitution sting in Santa Clara County. We are trying to help her begin a new life. Like most special victims, Ellie does not want to testify against the man who hurt her. We are proactively working to bring this violent criminal to justice so he cannot continue to prey on other girls in our community.

“I was so frustrated that police were not actively looking for Ellie. I truly do not believe Ellie would have been found without Special Operations. ” — Ellie’s Mother

Even in wealthy Silicon Valley neighborhoods, pimps are canvassing high schools, promising young girls Chanel bags if they “just do them one favor.” Will you please consider donating this holiday season so we can continue to rescue and rehabilitate girls like Ellie? We are a volunteer based organization and 100% of your donation goes directly towards stopping sex trafficking of children in the Bay Area.

Thank you for helping us keep kids safe in the Bay Area.

With gratitude,
The Special Operations Team
